Evaluation of Signage Alternatives for Express Lane Facilities

The main objective of this project is to determine the optimal amount of information to display and the manner in which the information is communicated to drivers to ensure a safe and effective operation of express lane facilities. The research will help prioritize the types of information to include and how best to display the information, including sign layout, sign placement, and, in the case of multiple sequential signs, spacing and order of sign display. This research will produce specific recommendations on the prioritization of contents to be displayed and the proper design and placement of signs for safe and effective express lane operations.
