I-580 Westbound Express Lane Project
Notice of Public Information Meeting
The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) and the Alameda County Transportation Commission (Alameda CTC) are holding a public meeting on Tuesday, May 14, 2013, to discuss the upcoming I-580 Westbound Express Lane Project.
Tuesday, May 14, 2013, from 5:00 to 7:00 p.m.
Regional Meeting Room
Dublin Civic Center, 100 Civic Plaza, Dublin, CA
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.
WHAT IS BEING PLANNED? 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. 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 total length of the proposed project is approximately 13.7 miles.
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.
