Looks like traffic will be a little hairy of 580 in Livermore for a while – barriers are lining the shoulders and the lanes are a bit narrower. Construction has started for a westbound HOV lane and an eastbound auxiliary lane from Hacienda Rd. to Greenville Rd.
After completion in the Fall of 2014, they will then start a new phase to convert the HOV lanes to express lanes with an expected completion date sometime in 2015.
Yep, 2015. That’s a couple and a half more years of yuck. With all the crazy drivers out there, be alert and drive safe.
