On April 7, 2010, the California Transportation Commission (CTC) authorized the first two regional design-build projects under the state's innovative contracting authority under Senate Bill 4, SBX2 4.
- The ExpressLane Project is a joint state/local project of the Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority (LA Metro) and the Department of Transportation (Caltrans), which will be implemented by Caltrans. The project will convert existing carpool lanes on Interstates 10 and 110 to high-occupancy toll (HOT) lanes, or ExpressLanes.
- The Riverside County Transportation Commission (RCTC) SR-91 Corridor Improvement Project is a local transportation entity project slated for implementation by a regional entity. It will widen State Route 91 with the addition of new freeway lanes, toll/express lanes, expanded freeway-to-freeway connectors and better access to and from the freeway at congested locations.
Other regional transportation agencies will no doubt be encouraged by the CTC’s unanimous approval of these two projects.
