Managed Lanes: A Primer

COURSE NO: C02-042
Managed Lanes: A Primer
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course is a primer on managed lanes and provides the transportation engineer or planner an overview of the implementation and operation of managed lanes.


Many transportation agencies face a growing demand for increasing road capacity, even though budgets are static or increasing very slowly.  As a result, the agencies are considering using lane management strategies that regulate demand, separate traffic streams to reduce turbulence, and utilize available and unused capacity.  Application of such operational policies is evolving into the notion of "managed lanes."  A managed lane is typically a "freeway-within-a-freeway" where a set of lanes within the freeway cross section is separated from the general-purpose lanes.


This 2 PDH online course is intended for civil, highway and transportation engineers involved in transportation planning, design and implementation.
