TRB will conduct a webinar on Thursday, September 20, 2018 from 2:00 PM to 3:30 PM ET that will share case studies from the operations of continuous access priced managed lane projects in California, Washington, and Minnesota. Continuous access priced managed lanes, which contain only a dashed-stripe separating the managed lanes from the general purpose lanes, are relatively new. Presenters will address procurement practices in developing performance and reporting requirements for toll system integration for open toll facilities, public outreach and education strategies, toll tag development and distribution, and other relevant topics that address operations. They will explore how continuous access priced managed lanes have affected operations, safety, enforcement, revenue, and customer satisfaction.

This webinar was organized by the TRB Standing Committee on Managed Lanes.

Some registrants will need to pay $95 to attend this webinarSign into to view registration information.
