Drivers on the I-680 Contra Costa Express Lanes may see asterisks and a letter (e.g., ****B) or blank spaces on variable toll messaging signs (VTMS). This may occur intermittently and should not last long. Not all signs in the corridor will be affected. The lanes will continue to operate as express lanes and solo drivers can still pay a toll to use the lanes during express lane operating hours of 5 a.m. to 8 p.m. on weekdays even if a sign (or a sign section) is blank or displays a message like ****B. The majority of the signs in each toll zone will continue to provide all toll information and intended messages.
What to Expect
- The majority of VTMSs in the corridor will provide toll prices and general messages as shown to the right.
- Some VTMSs may have blank sections or messages like “****A”.
The blank information or alternative messaging may occur intermittently and should not last long.
- Tolls are in effect 5 a.m. to 8 p.m. on weekdays even if a sign does not display tolling information.
Always use caution when driving
