(01-10) 11:57 PST OAKLAND -- The Bay Area's regional transportation-planning agency is forwarding a $2 billion wish list to the state agency charged with handing out billions of dollars in highway bond money.

The California Transportation Commission will decide next month how to spend the $4.5 billion in statewide congestion-relief money that voters approved in November as part of the $20 billion Proposition 1B.

Projects requested by the Bay Area's Metropolitan Transportation Commission include a fourth bore of the Caldecott Tunnel; carpool lanes on highways 101 and 4 and interstates 80, 580 and 680; a new San Francisco approach to the Golden Gate Bridge; a truck-climbing lane over the Altamont Pass; a new Cordelia Junction interchange for interstates 80 and 680 and Highway 12; and a regional system that would use technology to manage traffic.
