The ExpressLanes project, which someday will allow solo car drivers to share carpool lanes for a price along the 110 and 10 freeways, could be delayed when the Metro Board votes on a request to do so today. At issue is the 10 Freeway between the 605 and 710 freeways. Unlike the 110 Freeway, the 10 doesn't have two carpool, or hot, lanes. If Metro is given time to add one of these lanes, the ExpressLanes project would be more successful when it debuts. The project is a federally funded pilot project and the federal government has approved the time extension.
