Solutions So Far

The process is about developing the best alternative and we want to receive everyone ideas about what that should be.  We have a few to work with but we want your input.

The early planning study evaluated four alternatives:  prepared by Caltrans

  • Alternative 1: No Build
  • Alternative 2: Add one HOV lane in each direction with minimal left shoulders to limit widening
  • Alternative 3: Add one HOV lane in each direction with typical 10-foot left shoulders; requires some widening and replacement of bridges over the 101
  • Alternative 4: Add two HOV lanes in each direction with typical 10-foot left shoulders; requires extensive widening and replacement of bridges over the 101

At this point in the process, VCTC is interested in public input on these alternatives that have been included in the study to date as well as any other solutions you might suggest to address the existing and future congestion on the 101.
