What are Managed Lanes
• TxDOT defines a managed
lane facility as one that
increases freeway efficiency
by packaging various
operational and design
actions.
• Generally a “freeway within a
freeway” where a set of lanes
within the freeway cross
section is physically
separated from generalpurpose lanes
What are they?
• Physically Separated Toll
lanes with Controlled
Points of Access
• Utilize Fixed, Variable or
Traffic Responsive Tolls
to Manage Demand
• Also Known as ValuePriced Lanes
Objectives
• Relieve Congestion
• Optimize Use of Capacity
• Improve Operating
Speeds
• Provide Incentive for
Modal Shift
• Offer a Reliable
Alternative
HOT lanes are limited-access, normally barrier separated
highway lanes that provide free or reduced cost access to
qualifying HOVs, and sell additional capacity to other vehicles
which do not meet passenger occupancy requirements.
