Caldecott Tunnel

The California Department of Transportation is using $198 million in Recovery Act funds to expand the Caldecott Tunnel, which connects the Contra Costa suburbs to the city of Oakland through the Oakland Hills. The additional two-lane bore will bring the total number of east/west lanes to eight and is expected to alleviate congestion on Highway 24 for approximately 160,000 daily commuters.
