The Utah Department of Transportation’s (UDOT) Traffic Operations Center sought to perform an evaluation and research relating to the Express Lanes. TLG was hired to provide and manage a situational assessment of the current operating conditions of the Express Lanes program and develop a series of recommendations for enforcement improvements, driver education and public outreach. Through interviews, focus groups and research, UDOT staff and the project team spent several months identifying and evaluating a multitude of tools and techniques that have the potential to reduce the violation rate for Express Lanes. The report details these tools and techniques, which can be used to compare costs, effectiveness, implementation effort, public acceptance and legislative efforts. The final report can be used to determine what tools and techniques could and should be implemented to reduce Express Lanes. Ultimately, the information and graphics in the report will aid UDOT officials in decision making.
