The first ExpressLanes sign was installed on the northbound 110 on Wednesday at the Artesia Transit Center on Wednesday night.
Some of the info on the signs is blocked to prevent driver confusion until the ExpressLanes on the 110 opens this fall.
The ExpressLanes 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.
Look for more ExpressLanes infrastructure to be showing up along the 110 as the year progresses. Work is also continuing on the ExpressLanes on the 10 freeway between downtown L.A. and the 605 freeway — that segment is scheduled to open in early 2013.
