2 Presentation Overview Project Background HOT Lane Description Tolling Operations Construction Challenges Progress Photos

3 I-85 Express Lanes Conversion Project Background Demonstration project funded by the USDOT Congestion Reduction Demonstration (CRD) Program Grant, awarded to Georgia on November 21, 2008 CRD converts approximately 16 miles of the existing High Occupancy Vehicle (HOV) lanes between Chamblee Tucker Road in DeKalb County and Old Peachtree Road in Gwinnett County, plus 2 miles along SR 316, to High Occupancy Toll (HOT) lanes Purpose is to provide the most effective use of the managed lanes along portions of I-85 and SR 316 north of Atlanta in order to provide reliable travel times in this corridor.

4 Project Need VMT are forecast to increase by 50% between 2005 and 2030 in the 20-county transportation planning area, yet roadway capacity is planned to increase by <25% Travelers along the peak directional traffic flow of I-85 must allow an additional 33% to 47% of their travel time as a buffer to ensure on-time arrival On I-85, peak directional HOV Lane density increased from 17 VPM to 26 VPM between 2002 and 2008, along with a corresponding drop in LOS

5

6 What is a HOT Lane? High Occupancy Toll (HOT) lanes use a combination of occupancy requirement and tolling (i.e. pricing) to manage traffic demand Maximizes usage of a limited peak period resource HOV to HOT conversion is relatively inexpensive and quick compared to adding capacity

7 Operational HOT Lanes Legend SR 167 Washington Completed Proposed/Under Construction SR 217 Portland I-394 Minneapolis I-680 / I-880 Alameda SR 1 Santa Cruz SR 85 & US 101 Santa Clara I-10, I-110, I-210 Los Angeles SR 91 Orange County I-15 Utah I-25 Denver C-470 Denver I-35W Minneapolis St. Paul I-95, 395, 495 Virginia I-95 Maryland I-40 North Carolina Lincoln Tunnel New Jersey I-15 San Diego I-35 San Antonio I-10 Houston I-30 Dallas Loop 1 Austin US 290 Texas ` Expwy Tampa I-95 Miami

8 Tolling Open Road Tolling In-lane readers/gantries in the Express Lane will read the Peach Pass transponder and submit information back to SRTA to deduct the proper toll amount from customer account, per trip Registration for the Peach Pass transponder will start 60 days before the Express Lanes open

9 Peach Pass Transponder A small, thin electronic sticker tag, similar to the Cruise Card, that adheres to the vehicle s windshield or an external bumper mount for certain vehicles All Express Lane users will need to register for a Peach Pass transponder Cruise Card users will be able to use the Express Lane under new Peach Pass Account Agreement Peach Pass Transponder

10 Dynamic Pricing Express lane will be dynamically priced, so the toll will fluctuate based on congestion levels Dynamic pricing enables the Express Lane to provide more reliable travel times (designed to average 45 mph) The estimated average trip length of 6-7 miles, with typical toll prices ranging from $.60 to $6.00 depending on congestion Express Lanes will operate 24/7

11 Pricing and Toll Range Estimated Weekday Average Toll Rate Opening Year % Less than $ % Non-Tolled 7% $ $10.00 Projected average toll amounts are based on recent traffic and revenue study; actual amounts may vary. 2% $ $15.00

12 Violations & Enforcement Toll Violation Types: Not registered or no Peach Pass Improper entry/exit into Express Lane (cross double white lines) Occupancy violation (not paying the toll when driving with less than 3 occupants)* *Dept of Public Safety visual enforcement Violation fee = $25 plus toll amount: Additional associated traffic fines may be issued by law enforcement Existing technology used to alert law enforcement of Peach Pass customers in toll free mode Customers must enter and exit the Express Lane at proper lane breaks; not double-white line

13 Types of Express Lane Users Non-Tolled Tolled Prohibited Transit 3 or more person carpools Motorcycles Alternative Fuel Vehicles (AFV)* Emergency vehicles Single drivers 2 person carpools Trucks with more than 6 wheels *AFV Vehicles must have the proper license plate (does not Include hybrids) All vehicles must be registered before using the Express Lanes, including exempt/nontolled vehicles Customers can change their toll status from toll to toll-free based on number of people in their vehicle (e.g. 3 persons or more ride free) 13

14 Operation of Express Lanes Prior to using the Express lanes, all drivers must complete the following steps: Drivers must register as either toll exempt, which includes: HOV3+ (transit and vanpools are also exempt) State registered alternative fuel vehicles (AFV s) Motorcycles A toll lane customer, which includes vehicles with 2 or fewer occupants After completing registration, drivers will receive a Peach Pass transponder similar to the GA 400 cruise card, to place on the windshield of their vehicles

15 Operation of Express Lanes How will tolls be charged? Confirmation gantries located at regular intervals along the Express Lane system communicate with the transponder in the driver s vehicle to : Record the driver s entry and exit from the Express Lane Deduct toll amounts from the driver s account

16

17 Operation of Express Lanes Signs With their account activated and the transponder in place, drivers are now ready to use the Express Lanes at their convenience. In order to better aid drivers use of the Express Lanes, the following types of signs will be posted :

18 Operation of Express Lanes Entrance Signs Entering the Express Lane Purple and green Express Lane Entrance signs indicate upcoming designated entry or weave areas in the Express Lane system.

19 Operation of Express Lanes Exit Signs Exiting the Express Lane Green exit signs provide drivers with information about the destinations that are accessible from upcoming Express Lane system exits.

20 Operation of Express Lanes Variable Toll Rate Signs Posting Toll Rates Variable toll rate signs located at intervals along the Express Lane corridor post the toll amounts for upcoming destinations.

21 Construction Overview Project includes the following construction components: Installation of an underground conduit and pull box network for fiber optic communications and power service Installation of over 140,000 feet of fiber optic cables for Ethernet communications Installation of 51 overhead sign structures and gantries Installation of 35 horizontal and vertical extension arms to existing structures Installation of fiber optic networking equipment in device cabinets and existing Hub buildings

22 Tolling Equipment Rate signs Closed-circuit television (CCTV) cameras License plate recognition (LPR) cameras Automated vehicle identification (AVI) scanners Telecom interface Wireless redundant path communications

23 Construction Timeline September-October: material submittals, proofing duct, ECB rehabs, directional boring, guardrail installation November: directional boring, pulling fiber, guardrail, outside foundations December: pulling fiber, outside foundations, power service poles, removing barrier wall January: removing barrier wall, inside foundations, replace barrier wall, strain poles February: inside foundations, replace barrier wall, cabinets, structures, drop cables, fiber splicing March: cabinets, structures, field switches, fiber testing April-July: sign structures (non-tolling), pavement markings

24 Construction Challenges Duct proofing no as-built plans Conduit installation boring through paved shoulders & rock Median foundation installations existing drainage, lighting circuits Subcontractor coordination Traffic control restrictive hours for lane closures: NB lane closures allowed between 9 am - 2 pm SB lane closures allowed between 10 am - 3 pm Nighttime closures allowed between 8 pm - 5 am (SB) & 10 pm - 5 am (NB) No weekend daytime closures Weekend marathons: 9:00 pm Friday - 5:00 am Monday Traffic pacing: 11:00 pm 4:00 am
