I-5 - M Street to Portland Avenue - HOV Proposed design

This photo is a computer-enhanced visualization of I-5 once the M Street to Portland project is complete. Notice the extra bridge over I-705? It will accommodate northbound I-5 traffic. Current northbound lanes will be converted to an HOV facility for northbound and southbound HOV traffic. This conversion will save taxpayers about $20 million over of the cost to build a new HOV bridge.
