Schedule:

  • April 29 - 1.5 hour lecture/webinar from 1:00 - 2:30 pm.  Participants may view remotely as a webinar or attend the live session to be held at 2100 NE Waldo Road Bldg 1604; Room 105
  • April 30 - 4 hour hands-on computer lab workshop. Two workshops are available: 8:00 am - 12:00 pm or 1:00pm - 5:00pm*  (513 Weil Hall)

In a typical setting, lanes on a given freeway are designated either as regular or managed toll lanes. The former has no toll while the latter can only be accessed by paying a toll. If high-occupancy vehicles (HOVs) do not need to pay, the facility is widely known as a high-occupancy/toll (HOT) facility. Some of the HOT lane facilities currently implemented in the U.S. are single-segment (e.g., SR-91 in California and 95 Express in Florida), while others are multi-segment (e.g., I-15 in Utah, I-10 in Texas, and I-394 in Minnesota). A single-segment HOT facility has essentially one entrance, one exit, and one tolling point. In contrast, a multi-segment HOT facility has multiple ingress and egress points that are located distantly from each other, and multiple tolling points. This webinar focuses on the operations of single and multi-segment managed lanes. It covers several components of managed lane operations such as pricing strategies, lane choice models, and toll structures. It also demonstrates how to use CORSIM to simulate managed lanes with one or multiple segments.
