Caltrans Considering “Massive” Project to Convert HOV Lanes to Express Toll Lane in Santa Clara County

NBC News Bay Area reports, “Caltrans is considering a massive construction project that would turn HOV lanes along the Peninsula into an express toll lane. . . . If the plan is approved, the express toll lane would stretch from Highway 101 in Santa Clara County to the Interstate 380 interchange. The lane would be free for carpools, but solo drivers could pay a toll for a faster ride.”

Palo Alto Online reports that Caltrans and local transportation agencies will hold May 31 and June 5 public meetings on the proposal.
