Highway / Express Lanes
The I-405 Improvement Project in Orange County, CA will add one new general purpose lane along the right shoulder and one new express lane in the median in both directions along a 16-mile segment of I-405 between State Route 73 (SR-73) and Interstate 605. The existing high occupancy vehicle (HOV) lane will be converted to express lane operation to provide two express lanes in each direction. The I-405 Express Lanes will include single-lane direct connector ramps to/from SR-73 to the south and to/from I-605 and SR-22 to the north.
The project will also widen and replace 18 bridges, improve auxiliary lanes, relocate utilities, add new sound walls, and incorporate Transportation System Management and Transportation Demand Management strategies.
