RICHMOND-SAN RAFAEL BRIDGE -- There is good news for drivers who travel between Marin County and the East Bay. A $74 million improvement project for the Richmond-San Rafael Bridge is moving forward, according to the San Jose Mercury News.

The project would add a third lane for eastbound commuters, to ease the evening commute and would add a bike and pedestrian lane protected by concrete barriers.

The project is in the design and bidding stages. If all goes well, it could be completed by summer of 2017.
