SAN RAFAEL — Falling concrete damaged a vehicle on the Richmond-San Rafael Bridge late Friday night.

KPIX-TV reported that two baseball-size chunks of concrete fell onto a woman’s vehicle about 9:30 p.m. as she drove eastbound on the bridge. The woman was not injured.

A report was filed with the CHP and Caltrans has been notified, according to the station.

The station reported that the bridge remained open.

This isn’t the first time concrete has fallen from the upper deck of the 1950s-era span. In February, chunks of falling concrete left a 6-foot-long by 7-inch triangular cavity. Caltrans District 4 has since kicked off an $8 million project to repair the bridge.
