To better clear the streets of the Coliseum area following the USC home football game Saturday, September 7, three street segments are being closed to through traffic and a portion of the I-110 ExpressLanes is being opened to all motorists.
Beginning 10 p.m. and lasting until 12 a.m., Figueroa Street between Exposition Boulevard and Martin Luther King Boulevard will be closed to through traffic. Exposition Boulevard from Vermont Avenue to Figueroa Street will be closed. Also, Martin Luther King Boulevard from Vermont Avenue to Figueroa Street will be closed.
The I-110 Metro ExpressLanes beginning at 28th Street/Flower and 39th Street are open to all motorists, even if they do not have a transponder. Motorists may drive all the way to Manchester Avenue toll free. Regular ExpressLanes rules apply for any motorist remaining in the lanes after Manchester. You don’t need a transponder to participate in the special post-game offer, which applies to all USC home games beginning in the fourth quarter and lasting until two hours after the game ends.
If you want to open a FasTrak account and get an ExpressLanes transponder, you can sign up at the bright green van called MEL located just outside the Coliseum on Exposition Park Drive during all home games. Sign up with MEL on game day and receive a $5 credit. ExpressLanes on I-110 require solo drivers and registered carpools to have a transponder that registers tolls along segments of the roadway. The California Highway Patrol enforces Metro ExpressLanes.
