GOOD NEWS FOR I-10 COMMUTERS: A WHOLE NEW WAY TO COMMUTE.
WELCOME TO THE NEW AND IMPROVED KATY FREEWAY.
Starting April 18, everything changes on I-10. The Katy Managed Lanes become fully operational between Downtown Houston and Katy to give you new commuting options, even when you’re driving solo.
HERE’S HOW IT WORKS.
Now there are four HOV lanes: two heading in and two heading out of town between Highway 6 and Loop 610 for commuters to use throughout the day. Single drivers are welcome to use the lanes any time. If you’re traveling solo during HOV hours, just remember to drive in the designated EZ TAG lane on the right as you approach a tolling plaza so your EZ TAG can be read.
MAKING HOV LANES WORK HARDER FOR EVERYONE.
This new concept puts underused HOV lanes to good use for everyone, offering more options and helping to ease traffic in the main lanes. And by managing the tolls, we’ll keep traffic moving.
AN EZ TAG IS THE EZ ANSWER.
As always, carpoolers and motorcycles ride free in both directions during HOV hours. For everyone else, and at all other times, an EZ TAG is required.
GET THE SCOOP.
