How to Drive the Express Lanes

Where can I enter and exit the 405 Express Lanes?

With two lanes in either direction, OCTA’s new 405 Express Lanes covers the 14-mile stretch between the SR-73 freeway in Costa Mesa and the I-605 freeway near the L.A. County line. Drivers can enter and exit at the SR-73 (South) and I-605 (North).

In addition, there are multiple access between points between SR-73 and I-605, giving drivers sufficient opportunity to reach every interchange and business along the corridor:

  • Bolsa/Goldenwest
  • Magnolia/Warner
  • SR-22
