Free ride in carpool lanes during Fix50? Nope

Published: Wednesday, May. 7, 2014 - 4:02 pm

Q: I read somewhere that the carpool lane was open to even single drivers during the Fix50 Project. Is that on all freeways, or just the ones close to the project? - Bill Joens, Carmichael

A: I read that somewhere too. But, it’s not true. Caltrans says carpool lanes are functioning as normal, with no special rules. So far, commute traffic has been relatively light. Caltrans officials say the whole idea of carpool lanes is to encourage commuters to reduce congestion by doubling up.
