Arizona Perspectives on Priced Managed Lanes and Toll Roads 2014-2015

Traffic congestion is a major challenge for high-density and high-growth areas—wasting fuel, increasing vehicle emissions, and delaying the movement of passengers and freight. The problem is compounded by the gap between the cost of needed transportation projects and existing funding sources and levels that are remaining static at best. The concept of tolls and other forms of road pricing is garnering increased attention as an alternative method of financing, as well as a means of managing congestion. Currently, 34 states plus Puerto Rico have at least one tolled road, bridge, or tunnel; Arizona is not among them. This research study was conducted to gain insight into Arizonans’ knowledge and perceptions of transportation funding and financing, and to identify factors contributing to public acceptance of priced managed lanes and toll roads.
