What are Express Lanes?

Express Lanes are designated highway lanes designed to increase roadway capacity to offer drivers a faster and more reliable commute option during peak periods. Express lanes are built in addition to general-purpose lanes to help road authorities manage traffic more efficiently and alleviate congestion. Express lanes can be high-occupancy toll (HOT) lanes, high-occupancy vehicle (HOV) lanes, or an alternative for solo drivers willing to pay a toll to bypass congestion.
