2Agenda Welcome and introductions Lessons Learned Project overview and goals Managed lanes discussion District 4 Presentation Questions and Answers/Next steps Field Review – I-595 – 3-Lane reversible managed lanes (under construction) driving for Florida’s Turnpike to I-75 – I-75 – 4-Lane managed lanes system (programmed for construction) driving from I-595 to Pines Boulevard Lunch break Field Review – I-75 – 4-Lane managed lanes system (programmed for construction) driving from Pines Boulevard to SR 826 (Golden Glades Interchange) – I-95 – 4-Lane managed lanes system (Phase 2 under construction & Phase 3 PD&E study driving from SR 826 (Golden Glades Interchange) to SW 10 th Street Travel back to Broward Operations Auditorium Adjourn
3 District 3 One major limited access facility, I-10 Bridge Replacement Congestion problem is US 98, an arterial
4 District 2 I-295 will have tolled lanes Increased typical section from one to two additional lanes in each direction Bottlenecks with peak hour congestion exists today but trying to be proactive for future congestion
5 District 5 I-4 Ultimate Studying segments north and south of the Ultimate Looking at Concessionaire agreement
6 Turnpike Enterprise Integrated Congestion Pricing Plan Veteran’s Expressway HEFT Two Tier Toll System
7 District 4 Miami Express Lanes extend north to Oakland Park Boulevard (under construction) PD&E looking N. to Boca Raton Reevaluation to add HOT express lanes to S. of Linton
8 District Visits Meeting Dates – District 3: September 25 th – District 2: September 27 th – Turnpike: October 10 th – District 5: October 11 th – District 6: October 16 th – District 4: October 17 th – District 1: October 30 th – District 7: October 31 st
10 Project Overview Three Phases of Project Phase I – Policy and Action Plan Phase II – Procedures and Standards Phase III – Tolling and Return on Investment Project Purpose: It is the intent of the Department to develop a policy and related procedures requiring consideration of Managed Lanes as a part of all added capacity improvement projects on highways. The planning and development process should be conducted so as to not preclude the future implementation of Managed Lanes within the corridor.
11 Project Collaboration Project Sharepoint under development www.FloridaManagedLanes.com FDOT Systems Planning Office and consultants District/Turnpike Enterprise Champions SE Florida Regional Concept for Transportation Operations (RCTO) Coordination Managed Lanes Review Team (MLRT) Regional Expressway Authorities Other Stakeholders (e.g., FHWA)
12 FDOT Definition: Managed Lanes “Highway facilities or sets of lanes within an existing highway facility where operational strategies are proactively implemented and managed in response to changing conditions with a combination of tools.” FDOT Definition:
14 Issues to Consider Policy Finance Design Technology Operations Enforcement Supporting Strategies Institutional Aspects Public Acceptance
15 District Discussion Purpose – To learn from you – What are your experiences and “lessons learned” with managed lanes? – What do you want to get out of this project? – What do you want us to evaluate? – How can we develop a unified statewide system? – What can central office do to help Districts/Turnpike with their managed lanes projects?
16 Financial Structure: – Feasibility: Regional vs. Project/Corridor – Revenue Scenarios (Manage Demand, Generate Revenue) – Construction Cost and Project Delivery Models – Economy and Market Conditions Public Outreach and Legislative Agenda – Public opinion on tolls and road pricing – Enabling legislation, authorization to price pre-existing HOV lanes, carpool requirements, etc. Technology Evolution: – All Electronic Tolling conversion – National interoperability – Enforcement options Potential Discussion Topics
17 Consistency: – Statewide vs. Regional approaches – Access Schemes – Passenger Occupancy Requirements – Operational Hours Roadway Design Features: – Traffic Separation – Access Points – Number of lanes – Safety – Enforcement Areas Potential Discussion Topics
