Synthesis of Information Related to Highway Problems. Topic 34-06. Convertible Roadways and Lanes

Convertible lanes are recognized as an approach to alleviate recurring congestion through the optimization of capacity utilization. Benefits from the use of convertible lanes can be realized in areas with unbalanced directional traffic demand. This synthesis effort will locate and assemble documented information and survey state transportation agencies in order to report on existing experience with convertible roadway lane practices. This synthesis will include a discussion of HOV issues and the use of convertible lanes in construction zones.
