$156M of Freeway Improvements Approved

The VTA just received $156M to do some substantial work on South Bay freeways. $71M will be used to widen 880 from 6 lanes to 8 lanes all the way from 237 to 101. The 2 new lanes will both be HOV lanes (carpool lanes). $85M will be used to add new HOV and exit lanes on 101 between 85 and Embarcadero in Palo Alto. These upgrades are planned to be completed in 2014.

  1. I thought we needed better mass transit. Now I'm sad.
