The state transportation commission voted to allow private funding in the billion dollar project to renovate Doyle Drive.

The San Francisco approach to the Golden Gate Bridge will be the first in the state to be finished with private funding.

Last year, a new law took effect that allows the state to pay contractors one-third of the cost up front for completing a project and pay the rest over 30 years.
