The eastbound lanes of the San Mateo-Hayward Bridge are open Monday morning after crews finished weekend work on the span, a Caltrans spokesman said.
A common tactic by frustrated drivers to momentarily avoid freeway traffic – getting off the freeway only to get right back on – is the subject of a crackdown in Marin County.
Caltrans says it will take construction crews four months to repair the damage to the Bay Bridge from when a tanker ship grazed its fender and that it will cost $3 million.
Another billion dollars in transportation funding is being doled out for big road projects in California.
San Mateo Bridge commuters will have to wait a little longer for Caltrans to open one of its west bound lanes.
