Study for CA Highway 101 HOV and Express Lanes Saved by Local Funding

San Mateo Daily Journal reports, “Previously jeopardized plans to consider carpool lanes on the increasingly congested Highway 101 can now move forward as local companies have pledged a $3 million contribution. San Mateo County transportation officials have been working to cobble together funding for a study since losing an anticipated $9.4 million from the California Transportation Commission . . . . The estimated $11.5 million study will consider various options, such as adding a new lane or converting an existing lane to create either carpool or express/toll options for commuters. . . .”
