San Mateo Express Lanes set to open Friday

Express lanes

New Express Lanes will open Friday in San Mateo County between the San Mateo/Santa Clara County line to Whipple Avenue.

A goal of the lanes is to enable travel speeds of 45 mph or greater, resulting in reduced and more reliable travel times. The operational hours will be 5 a.m. to 8 p.m., Monday through Friday.

The entire San Mateo 101 Express Lanes Project is 22 miles in both directions on U.S. 101 from the San Mateo County/Santa Clara County Line to I-380 in South San Francisco.

Construction continues on express lanes from Whipple Avenue to I-380. The San Mateo 101 Express Lanes will seamlessly connect to the express lanes being constructed in Santa Clara County.

Key project benefits:

  •  Reduce congestion in the corridor
  •  Increase the number of people moved through the corridor
  •  Encourage carpooling and transit use
  •  Improve travel time and reliability for express lane users
  •  Use modern technology to manage traffic
  •  Make upgrades to pavement and lane striping
