State, regional and local representatives gathered last Friday for a ribbon cutting ceremony celebrating the efforts of many years of collaboration and tax payers who made the fourth bore a reality. The project which has been a vision for decades received the aid of the American Recovery Act funds, without which the project would have been stalled for years or decades.
Clockwise from top left, featured here are: Maria Viramontes, Councilmember of the City of Richmond and Chair of the Contra Costa Transportation Authority, State Senator Mark DeSaulnier, Randell Iwasaki, Director of California Department of Transportation and Congressman John Garamendi.
