Caltrans and Metro are evaluating alternatives to convert existing high-occupancy vehicle (HOV) lanes to dynamically priced, high-occupancy toll (HOT) lanes, also called ExpressLanes, or add a second HOV lane in both directions on Interstate 10 (I-10) from the current ExpressLanes end point at I-605 to the Los Angeles/San Bernardino County line.
The I-10 ExpressLanes Extension Project will analyze four proposed alternatives:
The project is in the environmental phase and completed the formal scoping process mid 2022. During the 45-day scoping comment period, the project team held three public scoping meetings, attended local community events and received 260 scoping comments from members of the public, agencies, elected officials, neighborhood councils, homeowner associations, businesses, local schools, community-based organizations and Native American tribal groups. These comments provided helpful guidance on the proposed alternatives and other potential alternatives that should be considered, as well as a scope of stakeholder issues and concerns related to the project. The scoping comments will also help inform the areas that may need to be addressed by the environmental and technical studies being developed in support of the Environmental Document, anticipated for public release in mid to late 2023. The release of the Environmental Document will include a public comment period and public hearings to solicit input.
The environmental review phase will encompass two components: the Project Report and the Environmental Document. Metro and Caltrans are developing a Draft Environmental Impact Report (EIR) and a Draft Environmental Assessment (EA) for this project in accordance with the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) and the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA).
A Project Report, Concept of Operations and a Traffic & Revenue Study are also being prepared.
