Document Description
Note: Final Caltrans, in cooperation with the Santa Clara Valley Transportation Authority (VTA), proposes to convert the existing High-Occupancy Vehicle (HOV) lanes on SR 85 to express lanes. Use of the HOV lanes is currently restricted to vehicles with two or more occupants, motorcycles, and certain alternative fuel vehicles. The conversion of the HOV lanes to express lanes would allow single-occupant vehicles (SOVs) to pay a toll to use the lanes, while HOVs would continue to use the lanes for free. The express lanes would extend along the entire 24.1 mile length of SR 85 and 1.5 miles of US Hwy 101 from the southern end of SR 85 to Metcalf Road in San Jose.
