Solo drivers, welcome to the fast lane in Moreno Valley.
Federal officials have given the go-ahead to a Caltrans plan to allow anyone to use car-pool lanes along Highway 60 during non-rush-hour periods, in an effort to help traffic flow faster. It’s not a done deal yet, with one more federal clearance to come, said Caltrans spokeswoman Barbara Miller.
But once Caltrans can re-stripe and hang signs outlining the rules, the Inland area’s first peak-period-only car-pool lanes will be open to everyone.
“It has got to make a difference,” said Anne Mayer, executive director of the Riverside County Transportation Commission.
