Pricing and Managed Facilities Conclusion
Managed lanes consist of a wide number and array of infrastructure improvements, technological improvements, and pricing strategies with the overall objective of improving travel flow. Where implemented, managed lanes have been shown to improve travel times and traffic flows, reduce the economic costs associated with congestion, reduce fuel consumption, and improve air quality though reductions in vehicular emissions. They can also achieve these benefits at lower cost than other Transportation improvements.
