Recent Transportation Commission decision on I-405 HOT lanes would not maximize traffic throughput

March 20, 2015 in Blog

Earlier this week, the State Transportation Commission approved a plan to toll Interstate 405 from Bellevue to Lynnwood.

The HOT lanes would allow free access to carpools with at least three people in the peak periods and will be tolled based on congestion in the adjacent general purpose lanes.
