Supervisor Mark Ridley-Thomas has proposed a one-year pilot project that would allow solo drivers to pay a toll to use carpool lanes on portions of the Harbor (I-110) and San Bernardino (I-10) Freeways that will generate revenue to improve public transportation and create more than 7,000 construction-related jobs. Learn more about the Supervisors proposal here (PDF) or by visiting Metro’s website dedicated to the Congestion Reduction Demonstration Project.
The project will be the focus of five public hearings this month. The Second District hearing will be held June 15 from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. in the Adult Activity Room at the Carson Community Center, 801 E. Carson St., Carson.
UPDATE: Another Second District hearing has been added on June 18th, from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. at Darby Park in Inglewood. The address is 3400 W Arbor Vitae St.
