I-580 westbound express lane project

Submitted By Tess Lengyel

The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) and the Alameda County Transportation Commission (Alameda CTC) will hold a public meeting on May 14, 2013 to discuss the upcoming I-580 Westbound Express Lane Project.

Caltrans and Alameda CTC propose to convert the planned high-occupancy vehicle (HOV) lane on I-580 westbound in Dublin, Pleasanton and Livermore to an express lane which 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 total length of the proposed project is approximately 13.7 miles.

The goal 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 public meeting will be held on Tuesday, May 14, 2013, from 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. in the Regional Meeting Room at the Dublin Civic Center, 100 Civic Plaza, Dublin. The meeting will be an open house for the public to learn about how the proposed express lane will work and to talk with members of the project team.
