Managed Lanes deal almost finalized in San Mateo County, California

After months of discussion, a split vote, meetings and more meetings, the owner and operator arrangement for the Managed Lanes project is all but set in stone.

Ownership of the tolled express lane facility coming to Highway 101 in San Mateo County will likely belong to both the San Mateo County Transportation Authority and City/County Association of Governments, and those agencies will likely contract with the Bay Area Infrastructure Financing Authority to operate the facility.

In San Mateo County, a joint powers authority will likely be created to make policy decisions related to the express lane facility and that JPA will be comprised of an equal number of members from the TA and C/CAG.
