Human Factors Study to Understand Driver Behavior on Managed Lane Facilities

The main goal of this research is to conduct a human factors study to understand driver behavior in managed lane facilities. Specifically, this research focuses on the driver behavior pertaining to the safety performance of buffer separation versus pylons separation and buffer separation versus concrete barrier separation on managed lane facilities. The research findings will enable the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) and local agencies to make informed decisions on separation treatments between the managed and general-purpose lanes. The study results could also be leveraged across the U.S., where managed lanes are operational.
