On Augthe Metropolitan Transit Authority (METRO) of Harris County in Texas, in cooperation with the Texas State Department of Highways and Public Transportation and the Urban Mass Transportation Administration, began operation of a contraflow lane on the North Freeway as one element of a comprehensive Cited by: 1.

A nine-mile contraflow HOV lane on the I North Freeway in Houston, Texas was implemented as a demonstration project in This demonstration borrowed an off-peak direction traffic lane for use by buses and vanpools in the peak direction.

The North Freeway (I) Contraflow Transit Project began operation in August as Houston's first major effort to provide freeway preferential treatment for transit movement.

The facility provides a daily travel-time saving of approximately 30 min during the line-haul portion of the commuting trip. Using a federal Service and Methods Demonstration (SMD) grant, the OPT and THD examined the potential of freeway HOV lanes, which were a relatively new concept at the time.

A contraflow lane demonstration project on the North (I North) Freeway was recommended to test the HOV concept. Abstract A nine-mile contraflow HOV lane on the I North Freeway in Houston, Texas was implemented as a demonstration project in This de monstration borrowed an off-peak direction traffic lane for use by buses and vanpools in the peak direction.

HOT (Express) Lanes I North / North Freeway. METRO HOT (Express) Lanes operate on a revised HOV Lane schedule to allow vehicles additional time for simplified commutes. Houston, Texas METRO's mission is to provide safe, clean, reliable, accessible and friendly public transportation services to our region.

In Houston’s plan, the borrowed lane would be marked off by pylons inserted into holes in the pavement at foot (12 m) intervals.

The success of the North Freeway contraflow lane soon had officials turning their attention to another severely congested freeway, IH 10 West, the Katy Freeway.

The Katy Freeway west of Loop was slated for a. In the event of a hurricane evacuation from low-lying coastal areas, existing highway lanes (freeway and non-freeway) may be converted into contraflow lanes.

The I South / Gulf Freeway METRO HOT (Express) Lanes operate on a revised HOV Lane schedule to allow vehicles additional time for simplified commutes.

The I South / Gulf Freeway corridor tolls for single-occupant users of METRO HOT (Express) Lanes are. Contraflow lane reversal is the altering of the normal flow of traffic, typically on a controlled-access highway (such as a freeway or motorway), to either aid in an emergency evacuation (the most common usage of the term in the United States) or, as part of routine maintenance activities, to facilitate widening or reconstruction of one of the highway's carriageways (the most common usage in.

HOUSTON MANAGED LANES CASE STUDY: THE EVOLUTION OF THE HOUSTON HOV SYSTEM A nine-mile contraflow High Occupancy Vehicle (HOV) lane on the I North Freeway in Houston, Texas was implemented as a demonstration project in This demonstration borrowed an off-peak direction traffic lane for use by buses and vanpools in the peak direction.

North Freeway (Houston to Conroe)replacing the contraflow lane. Reconstruction of the main lanes and frontage roads to handle increased traffic began in just north of downtown.

No lanes were added south of I, but the eight-lane cross section, with room for a transitway, was continued north as construction progressed.

Research Study Title: Priority Use of Freeway Facilities Abstract Sponsoring Agency Code A contraflow lane is in operation on IN in Houston during both the morning and afternoon peaks.

Operation of that lane requires taking a lane away from the off-peak direction mixed-flow traffic to serve as the contraflow lane. The median strip or central reservation is the reserved area that separates opposing lanes of traffic on divided roadways, such as divided highways, dual carriageways, freeways, and term also applies to divided roadways other than highways, such as some major streets in urban or suburban areas.

The reserved area may simply be paved, but commonly it is adapted to other functions. Harris County has published maps of evacuation contra-flow plans and officials want local residents to study the maps and be ready if contra-flow has to be implemented during an In response to ongoing concerns related to traffic congestion on the freeway system, limited available right-of-way, and air quality, the initial nine-mile contraflow demonstration project has evolved over an almost year period into a system that encompasses some miles of HOV lanes, numerous direct access ramps, 28 park-and-ride lots, four park-and-pool lots, an extensive network of express bus.

To make matters worse, the regional evacuation plan was missing a key element — pre-planned contraflow lanes that are a part of virtually every other. High-Occupancy Vehicle (HOV) lanes are found in the Dallas-Fort Worth and Houston areas.

North Texas HOV Lanes; Houston HOV Schedules and Maps. THE EVOLUTION OF THE HOUSTON HOV SYSTEM. The Houston high-occupancy vehicle (HOV) system has evolved over an almost year period.

Starting with a 9-mile contraflow lane demonstration project on the I North Freeway inthe system now encompasses some miles of HOV lanes, numerous direct access ramps, 25 park-and-ride lots, three park-and-pool lots. The I North contraflow lane demonstration project was implemented in The bus service initiated with the contraflow lane focused on downtown Houston.

Bus service was constrained by very limited access. There was no direct access to and from park-and-ride lots, which limited service flexibility.Katy freeway authorized vehicle lane: evaluation of the first year of operation.
