Evaluation of MnPASS Access Changes on I-394

A previous project from the UMN entitled "Evaluation of the Effect MnPASS Lane Design has on Mobility and Safety" developed recommendations for designing access spacing on HOT lanes. Based on the recommendations of this study, MNDOT restriped the I-394 MnPASS lanes to have a more open access design. This project would measure the effectiveness of these changes to ensure that a more open access design has not had any ...more »
