I-405 Sepulveda Pass ExpressLanes Project

Project Overview Video

Metro is working in coordination with Caltrans to evaluate alternatives to convert the existing high occupancy (HOV)  lanes to dynamically-priced, high-occupancy toll (HOT) lanes, called ExpressLanes, in both directions of I-405 between I-10 and US-101. The following alternatives are being considered as part of the environmental review process which will study how each performs in accomplishing the project’s goals.

Alternative 1: Existing Conditions (no build)​
Alternative 2: Convert HOV to one ExpressLane​
Alternative 3: Convert HOV to two ExpressLanes (non-standard lane and shoulder widths)​
Alternative 4: Convert HOV to two ExpressLanes ​(standard lane and shoulder widths)​
Alternative 5: Add an Additional HOV Lane (non-standard lane and shoulder widths)
