  1. MnPASS I-394 Operations March 23, 2006 Nick Thompson Mn/DOT

  2. Problem/Solution • Nature of the problem • Funding for new construction is limited • Congestion continues to grow • I-394 perception: Is HOV lane half empty or half full? • 2002 Twin Cities HOV Study • 2001 Legislature mandated study HOV lanes • Findings: • HOV lanes successful for carpool/transit but operating at less than full potential • During peak, HOV lanes (3,053) are typically moving more people per lane than general-purpose lanes (2,076) • FHWA urged changes • Solution: MnPASS Express Lane

  3. 394 MnPASS Project Goals • Improve the efficiency of I-394 • Maintain free flow speeds for transit and carpools • Improve highway and transit in corridor with revenues generated • Use electronic toll collection • Employ new technologies such as dynamic pricing and in-vehicle enforcement tools
