In the latest skirmish over the idle Sunshine Canyon Landfill, the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors delayed a decision Thursday over whether to accept ownership of the main road into the controversial dump. Browning-Ferris Industries Inc., which owns the northern San Fernando Valley landfill, hopes turning its privately owned road over to the county will allow the waste-management company to resume trucking waste to the dump.

Officials broke ground on what will be Los Angeles County's first freeway toll lanes, taking a gamble that drivers will be willing to pay significant sums to avoid rush-hour traffic. Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa and other officials on Wednesday hailed the project as a major improvement to L.A.'s clogged freeway system. Officials plan to convert a total of 25 miles of existing carpool lanes on the 10 and 110 freeways into high-occupancy toll lanes. Carpools and buses will be able to use the lanes for free, while solo drivers will pay up to $1.40 a mile during peak rush-hour traffic.

Advancing their experiment with toll roads, Los Angeles County transportation officials are considering more projects for local highways -- including a freeway on the Westside -- that would allow solo motorists to pay to use carpool lanes. A preliminary study by the Metropolitan Transportation Authority has recommended five locations that should be explored further for the installation of high-occupancy toll lanes, or HOT lanes. The MTA's ad hoc congestion-pricing committee is set to discuss the matter on Wednesday.

A bill by Assemblyman Mike Gatto (D-Sliver Lake) that would allow solo drivers to use carpool lanes during non-peak hours on the 134 Freeway in Glendale and Burbank has been amended to possibly include other local freeways. Gatto's bill, AB 405, passed its first hurdle Monday after it was approved by the Assembly Transportation Committee on a 15-1 vote. It was originally drafted to only apply to the section of the 134 Freeway, but was amended to include other roads in Los Angeles County that are deemed appropriate by the California Department of Transportation , including the 210 Freeway.
