Attention weary commuters on Highway 101: Help is on the way, from Gilroy to Sunnyvale to SFO and through Petaluma.

The California Transportation Commission has approved $351 million to add express lanes on 101 from Highway 237 to Interstate 380, rebuild the 101-237 interchange at Mathilda Avenue, begin plans for new ramps at 101-25 south of Gilroy, widen the Marin-Sonoma Narrows bottleneck and fund a pilot express bus line on 101 in San Mateo County.

The 101 express lane work is expected to be under design this summer. The 64 miles of toll/carpool lanes could open in the summer of 2021.
