Review of the Effectiveness of the High Occupancy Vehicle (HOV) Lanes Extension

Congestion in Salt Lake City is showing an increasing trend and as congestion reaches higher levels, the benefits of the High Occupancy Vehicle (HOV) lanes will likely increase. It needs to be determined whether the Salt Lake Valley HOV lanes and their extension are performing effectively in terms of travel time benefits, congestion mitigation at the 10600 South bottleneck, and the ability to carry more people in fewer vehicles. These factors should be thoroughly analyzed to track the increasing benefits, identify the problems that need to be addressed and determine the conditions that would encourage additional HOV users. The goal of this study is to evaluate the effectiveness of the HOV lanes extension on I-15 in the Salt Lake Valley.
