High Occupancy Toll (HOT) lanes are used to help assuage the traffic congestion on highways, even when High Occupancy Vehicle (HOV) lanes are available. During peak hours HOV lane use can be low with available capacity that could be used to reduce congestion on the general purpose lanes.
This 4 hour course will discuss the several issues related to implementing HOT lanes including technical and operational issues. It will provide useful information to determine if HOT lanes should be used and how to implement them within the highway system.
This course can be used by anyone with an interest in transportation engineering, environmental engineering, roadway design, traffic engineer or any wanting to know more information regarding HOT lanes. After reading this course the student will know the basic information regarding HOT lanes.
The course materials are based solely on the Department of Transportation document “A guide for HOT Lane Development” as found on the website of the US DOT Intelligent Transportation Systems.
This course includes a multiple-choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of course materials.
