Many transportation agencies face a growing demand for increasing road capacity, even as budgets are static or increasing very slowly. As a result, agencies are considering using lane management strategies that regulate demand, separate trafﬁc streams to reduce turbulence, and utilize available and unused capacity. Application of such operational policies is evolving into the notion of “managed lanes.” A managed lane is typically a “freeway-within-a-freeway” where a set of lanes within the freeway cross section is separated from the general-purpose lanes. This course is a primer on managed lanes and provides the transportation engineer or planner an overview of the implementation and operation of managed lanes.
This course includes a multiple-choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of the course materials.
