Study Description

**********This project is being created to convert Pooled Fund Project TPF-5(029) to the “New” Pooled Fund Procedures. All new Funding Commitments will need to be made on the Pooled Fund Website to this new project and all new funds will be transferred to the Lead State/Agency by the partners. The Lead State/Agency will have the responsibility for Receiving, Obligating, Expending, and Balancing the funding for this project.

The High Occupancy Vehicle (HOV)/ Managed Use Lane (MUL) Pooled Fund Study (PFS) is intended to serve as a forum and provide an opportunity for the participants to identify, address and collectively take on the key issues and challenges that are common among public agencies that are responsible for managing and operating HOV facilities. The HOV/MUL PFS focuses on the critical program, policy, technical, and other issues that arise throughout the life cycle of an HOV/HOT/MUL facility. The HOV/MUL PFS also provides an opportunity to facilitate the interaction, sharing of information, and successful practices with a broader audience to advance and improve upon the current state-of-the-practice related to the management, operation, and performance of HOV/HOT/MUL facilities.

Objectives

The goal of this study is to assemble regional, State, and local agencies, service providers, and FHWA to: (1) identify issues that are common among agencies that manage roadway lanes as a tool to reduce congestion and optimize facility usage; (2) suggest projects and initiatives to advance practice; (3) select and initiate projects intended to address identified issues; (4) identify recommendations and potential solutions, and (5) disseminate results.

Scope of Work

The following are offered as broad topics or examples of issues that might be addressed within the intended scope of the HOV/MUL PFS:

-HOV/MUL System program and policy issues;

-Facility, corridor, and system planning issues and techniques;

-Operational policies, procedures, and plans;

-Program support services and Transportation Demand Management issues;

-Air quality impacts and modeling tools;

-Transit facilities and intermodal transport;

-Facility and system design;

-Performance monitoring, evaluation, and reporting;

-Contracting and procurement practices and issues;

-Implementation and construction work zone issues;

-Enforcement and traffic incident management; and

-Marketing and public information outreach.

The HOV/MUL PFS is now entering its seventh year. Eight projects have been selected and are being initiated based on available funds. Details of the projects and products that have been produced to date are available at the HOV/MUL PFS web site at http://hovpfs.ops.fhwa.dot.gov/. An overview of current and future HOV PFS activities is available at http://hovpfs.ops.fhwa.dot.gov/overview.cfm.

Subjects: Highway and Facility Design Highway Operations, Capacity, and Traffic Control Planning and Administration
