RICHMOND, Calif. - The Bay Area Toll Authority has decided to look into adding a third lane to the westbound section of the Richmond-San Rafael Bridge, according to our partner the Marin Independent Journal.
The evening commute is about to get a break. The eastbound section of the bridge is about to open the shoulder to cars during peak times -- that is set to start next month. Now they are turning their attention to the westbound section.
They have voted to spend $100,000 studying this idea.
Traffic on the Richmond-San Rafael Bridge has grown 13 percent from five years ago.
