  • Abstract:
    This purpose of this project was to identify the potential factors that could impact truck use of toll roads or

    managed lanes. The researchers outlined the trucking and freight industry needs through synthesis of

    existing literature. Identification of geometric and operating factors that are important to truck drivers and

    operators in terms of safety and efficiency will better characterize what makes toll roads attractive to those

    users. The factors are organized around industry needs (e.g., safety, travel reliability), facility design

    characteristics (e.g., access, ramp design, system connectivity), operating characteristics (e.g., signing and

    pavement markings), and corridor operating characteristics (e.g., traffic, congestion). The research resulted

    in published guidelines to help transportation planners, highway designers, and transportation operations

    professionals determine the geometric design and operational factors important to attract the trucking and

    freight industry to toll roads. The research was done through known relationships of design, safety, and

    operations.
