Background (Show)

Lesson Learned

When developing managed lanes and congestion pricing projects:
  • Incorporate managed lanes and congestion pricing projects into the metropolitan transportation planning process. The metropolitan planning process should allow for projects to emerge individually as a result of corridor studies, but also be regionally coordinated in a network approach.
  • Address transit access to the congestion priced/managed lanes during the planning process.
  • Recognize and implement additional management and communication planning on managed lanes projects that cross several State DOT districts and/or Metropolitan Planning Organizations. There will be additional challenges in getting these projects into the Metropolitan Transportation Plan because of the added concern about allocation of toll revenues.
