We’re at t-minus eight days until the opening of the ExpressLanes on the 110 freeway on Saturday, Nov. 10. We’ve been posting tips from the ExpressLanes teams on how to use the lanes. Today’s lesson: how to get into and out of them! From the team:
“It’s important to note that the ExpressLanes are separated from the general purpose lanes by double solid white lines. This is a change from the typical carpool lanes which are separated from the general purpose lanes by double solid yellow lines.
Why the change? In 2011, the State passed a law requiring Express Lanes to conform to the federal requirement that double white lines serve as the buffer striping to separate the general purpose lanes from the Express Lanes. It’s a moving violation to cross the double white lines so never cross a double white or double yellow line. The double white lines are in effect 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
The 110 ExpressLanes have designated entry and exit points indicated by a single dashed white line. For more information on how the ExpressLanes will work, check out the above video.
