Value pricing is proposed to cost $32,625,000 over 3-years on a congested North Texas freeway

Implementing and operating value pricing on the Tom Landry Freeway in the Dallas-Fort Worth area proposed to cost $32,625,000 for the first three years

June 2005

Summary Information

The North Central Texas Council of Governments (NCTCOG) conducted a regional value pricing study for the I. H. 30/Tom Landry Freeway corridor in the Dallas-Fort Worth area. As the region continues to grow, and land and resources are limited for building new capacity, the region considered different approaches. One approach included managing the increasing congestion by operating its freeways more efficiently. Value pricing, also known as managed lanes, is one of the strategy transportation leaders considered to improve system efficiency. Projects in California, Texas, Florida and New York have shown that value pricing can be an effective technique for managing congestion and raising revenue on highway facilities.
