Managed Lanes: Current Status and Future Opportunities, University Transportation Center for Alabama

The objective of the project is to develop a better understanding of managed lanes and their potential to address congestion issues in urban settings. Specifically, the project will:

  1. Identify and address key  issues related to planning, implementation, and operation of managed lanes;
  2. Utilize traffic analysis tools (micro simulation, dynamic traffic assignment, etc.) to predict the impact of managed lanes strategies on traffic operations in the Birmingham area; and
  3. Conduct technology transfer activities to advance the implementation of managed lanes as a strategy to enhance traffic management and congestions mitigation.
