Caltrans Unveils Major Improvements near
San Mateo- Hayward Bridge Toll Plaza

Motorists can expect major improvements in traffic flow at the San Mateo Bridge toll plaza as of Sunday, July 1, 2000 when Caltrans widens the Highway 92 approach to the bridge and opens a new toll booth. Other changes include relocating the carpool lane to the far left lane and relocating the Fastrak-only lane.

These permanent changes will significantly increase the capacity and efficiency of the toll plaza and its approach. However, Caltrans urges motorists to drive cautiously in the early days following these changes to allow fellow motorists to adjust to the relocation of the carpool lane and FasTrak-only lane.

The following changes will be in effect by 10 AM Sunday morning:

To implement these changes Catrans will close various lanes and tollbooths on westbound Highway 92 between Hesparian Boulevard and the toll plaza from 8 PM, Saturday June 30 until 10 AM, Sunday morning.
