A public meeting on the upcoming Interstate 580 Westbound Express Lane Project will be held at the Dublin Civic Center on May 14, starting at 5 p.m.
The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) and the Alameda County Transportation Commission (Alameda CTC) are hosting the meeting and are proposing to convert the planned high-occupancy vehicle (HOV) lane on I-580 westbound in Dublin, Pleasanton, and Livermore to an express lane, the Alameda CTC said in a press release.
The Alameda ATC says:
The purpose of the proposed project is to provide additional congestion relief, provide enhanced operational and safety improvements, expand the mobility options in the corridor, and maintain consistency with the provisions defined in Assembly Bills 2032 (2004) and 574 (2007) to implement express lanes in the I-580 corridor.
The express lane will allow carpools, vanpools, motorcycles, buses, and eligible clean-air vehicles to travel without a fee, while also giving solo drivers the option to pay to use the lane to avoid congestion. The length of the proposed project is approximately 13.7 miles.
