PRELIMINARY EVALUATION OF APPLICABLE PRIORITY TREATMENT TECHNIQUES ON EXISTING URBAN FREEWAYS IN TEXAS

Congestion is increasing significantly on Texas urban freeways. One means of increasing roadway capacity is to provide preferential treatment for high-occupancy vehicles (HOV). This report documents the preliminary screening of five alternative priority treatment techniques that could be applied to 26 urban freeways in Texas. The improvements that could be undertaken are identified. No attempt is made to identify what HOV improvement should be undertaken. At least one priority treatment technique that appears to be technically feasible for each of the 26 freeways studied is identified.
