Ask Caltrans: Why are there lights in the pavement on the northbound SR-110?


Dynamic lane on northbound Arroyo Seco Parkway (SR-110)

Many were already aware, but some of you missed it, so here it is again.

That’s the dynamic lane which opened in January 2010 provides a technological solution to geographical restriction. 

The dynamic lane provides more capacity in a location physically constrained by the Figueroa Tunnel and a nearby reservoir.  The dynamic lane operates between 3 p.m. and 7 p.m., Monday through Friday.  This solution has not been employed anywhere else in the state.

When the lights shine don’t cross that line.  

When the lights are off the number 2 lane can be used as an additional lane to connect to northbound I-5.

The video will help explain.
