Study Description

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.

Comments

Desired level of contribution is $50,000 per year for each agency. However, desired level of commitment may vary, based on size and type of agency (e.g. county and city). Desired minimum level of contribution is $10,000 per year per agency. State Agencies may join online. Other agencies, such as cities, counties, regional transportation agencies, toll authorities, and port authorities, may join by submitting a commitment form available at the HOV PFS web site via the link below.

Study Description

Study Description

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.

Comments

Desired level of contribution is $50,000 per year for each agency. However, desired level of commitment may vary, based on size and type of agency (e.g. county and city). Desired minimum level of contribution is $10,000 per year per agency. State Agencies may join online. Other agencies, such as cities, counties, regional transportation agencies, toll authorities, and port authorities, may join by submitting a commitment form available at the HOV PFS web site via the link below.
