    Caltrans on Wednesday is slated to hold its second to last meeting as it mulls installing express lanes on Highway 101 along the Peninsula.

    The proposed express lanes would stretch from Interstate 380 near San Francisco International Airport to Whipple Avenue in Redwood City, and then already existing carpool lanes from Redwood City to the Palo Alto area would be converted to express lanes.

    Drivers would have to pay to use the lanes between 5 a.m. and 8 p.m.

    One public meeting to discuss the proposal is scheduled to take place Wednesday at 6 p.m. at Redwood City Hall. A final meeting will take place next Monday at 6 p.m. at San Mateo City Hall.

    If the proposal is approved, construction could begin in May of 2019, according to Caltrans.
