Just Another Day In SouthLA
If you haven’t heard yet or noticed the construction on the 110 Harbor Freeway yet, your missing the transformation of the Carpool Lane into Express Lanes. Meaning now for a monthly or yearly fee anyone will be able to use the carpool lane. The first Express sign went up on the Northbound 110 freeway at the Artesia Transit Center last week. The lanes are scheduled to open this fall.
The Express Lanes project will allow single motorists to pay a toll to use the carpool lanes on the 110 freeway when there’s extra capacity. The toll will vary by time of day and level of traffic — the idea being to help spread traffic across all the freeway’s lanes and to raise money to help fund transit improvements.
ExpressLanes are also being installed on the 10 freeway between downtown L.A. and the 605 freeway — that segment is scheduled to open in early 2013.
