Below is Fluor's HOT lane propaganda site. There are some useful pdf maps and other documents if you are interested. Also a timeline.

I noticed that they disabled a link showing a lane configuration for 395. That would have shown the narrow shoulders. What a bunch of scum bags.

They dont mention on their facilities map that most of the facilities shown are already there.

I found this paragraph on another page of the website that says in addition to providing congestion-free lanes, the HOT project will allow carpools (with slugs) to travel for FREE:

"Opportunities and incentives for sluggers
An expanded HOV network, new entry and exit points and 3,000 new Park & Ride spaces will benefit sluggers. HOT lanes mean drivers will have a new financial incentive to pick up sluggers to use the free-flowing lanes without paying a toll."

But ... I'm remaining skeptical. [;)]
Let's believe it when we see it!

Oh it will be free initially. It's just that we will be an hour later to work. That is except for those of us in a car with a breakdown in the 2 foot shoulder lane. Those slugs will be deceased. [:(!]
