2 I-35W UPA Project Summary I-35W UPA Project Budget: $65.7M Combined $133 M in Federal funds, with $50.2 M in State Funds Funded 24 different projects and initiatives in four areas – Congestion Pricing (Tolling) – Transit – Telecommuting – Technology

3 I-35W HOV to HOT Conversion Existing HOV Lane extended/ converted to HOT Lane – Extend existing HOV through system interchange – Widen HOT lane to add buffer – Added tolling and lane management technology – Modified signing and striping HOT Lane now complete through the I-35W/Crosstown project

4 Priced Dynamic Shoulder Lane (PDSL): Segment 3: 3 miles Priced Dynamic Shoulder Lane North of 42 nd St on NB 35W Maintains existing 4 lanes with an added PDSL Lane Effectively extends the MnPASS lane to downtown Minneapolis using existing road space

5 I-35W HOT Lane Signing

6 ILCS located every ½ mile over every lane. A total of 174 ILCS are installed ILCS are a 4ft x 5ft full color matrix signs. Use of the ILCS is primarily for incident management and speed harmonization. Designates when the priced dynamic shoulder lane is open or closed along with additional signing. I-35W Intelligent Lane Control Signals

7 ILCS Sign Options Blank – default Green – Lane Open Flashing Yellow – Caution Red X – Closed  X  X 1 MILE Yellow X – Closed Ahead Merge Speed Limit White Diamond 40 MPH >>>

8 Variable Speed Limits Advisory Only Detection measures traffic speeds downstream Speeds are posted up to 1 ½ miles upstream

9 Innovative Design

10 I-35W MnPASS Early Results 2500-3000 MnPASS users per day prior to Crosstown opening; 500 + use PDSL 6000 new transponders holders in I-35W corridor About 150 new-account holders sign up for 35W per week 20-25 % of total customers are MnPASS – 8% violation rate Almost 2000 new transponder holders in I-394 corridor

11 BRT Integration In I-35 W Corridor

12 What’s Next for MnPASS Congestion Pricing? All existing HOV lanes converted to HOT Seeking MnPASS expansion opportunities under several design concepts: – 2 miles extension of I-35W HOT lane in 2011 – Implementing managed lanes and shoulders on I-94 in 2011 – Studying MnPASS lane using movable barrier on major river crossing – More dynamic shoulders under consideration MnPASS Phase II Study prioritizing system expansion areas
