The I-680 Express Lanes from SR-84 to Alcosta Boulevard Project will close the gap between existing and in-progress high-occupancy vehicle (HOV)/express lane projects directly to the north and south. The project extends for approximately 9 miles on northbound and southbound I-680 through Sunol, Pleasanton, Dublin and San Ramon.
Project benefits include:
- Increased efficiency of the transportation system between SR-84 and Alcosta Boulevard to accommodate current and future traffic demand
- Improved travel time and travel reliability for all users, including HOV and transit users
- Optimized freeway system management and traffic operations
The Draft Environmental Document (DED) was released for public review from May 29, 2020 to June 30, 2020. Caltrans addressed the comments received during the public review period, and signed the Final Environmental Document (FED) and the Project Report, marking the completion of the project approval and environmental documentation (PA&ED) phase. Design and construction of this project is planned into two phases: southbound (Phase 1) and northbound (Phase 2). Phase 1 final design work was initiated in February 2020. Phase 2 final design and construction will be implemented at a future date yet to be determined.
For additional information on this phase of the project and the virtual public meeting that took place on June 18th, please visit the Public Meetings tab.
Please note that the approved Environmental Document is for the overall project (Phase 1 and Phase 2).
