Metro and Caltrans are studying the following proposed Alternatives:
- Alternative 1: Existing Conditions (No Build) Maintains its current condition with no changes. No additional travel lanes or ramp improvements would be implemented
- Alternative 2: Convert HOV to One (1) ExpressLane Convert existing HOV lane to one ExpressLane in each direction with standard lane widths.
- Alternative 3: Convert HOV to Two (2) ExpressLanes (Non-Standard Lane Widths) Convert existing HOV lanes to two ExpressLanes in each direction, with non-standard lane and shoulder widths.
- Alternative 4: Convert HOV to Two (2) ExpressLanes (Standard Lane Widths) initially considered, however it was eliminated from further consideration as it would have resulted in unavoidable, significant environmental impacts.
