Los Angeles County: Toll lanes in the Sepulveda Pass? The 405 Freeway is moving in that direction

Los Angeles County spent 4½ years and more than $1.6 billion to widen the 405 Freeway through the Sepulveda Pass.

Now, the carpool lane born from that mega-project is facing a major change of its own: tolls.

The Metropolitan Transportation Authority is in the early stages of planning to allow solo drivers in the 405’s carpool lanes, for a price. Similar programs on portions of the 110 and 10 freeways charge drivers a per-mile toll that changes based on traffic conditions.
