Title: Managed Lane Study Coming Soon!
Post by: TheArkansasRoadgeek on June 25, 2017, 06:22:40 PM
So, I found this by looking around the web and ended up at ArkansasHighways ( they haven't change the layout, yet). http://www.arkansashighways.com/consultant_services/advertisements/ad_fy2017/RLOI%20for%20Managed%20Lanes%202017%20final%20web.pdf It is a PDF, not much to it other than a letter template and what should present within the document. But, I read somewhere about I-30 or this could be for the 630? I did see and Ad for I-49 and a managed lane study for the Bella Vista area/region. So, I have to pull this out there: Future tolling of Arkansas interstates to come? I read on a page (I believe by: THV11) The story was on the possibility of a managed lane system coming to the Little Rock freeway system. So, I guess they are still thinking about other alternatives than just gas taxes! Great! :clap:

How congested is the Little Rock freeway system? Would Managed Lanes help relieve Little Rock's congestion?

IMO, half the congestion is people who don't know how to drive.

Really, it isn't "Big City" traffic, it is just a bunch of general and commuter traffic from surrounding areas coming together in one place. If that weren't the case, the 630 and others would possibly be a typical Arkansas interstate of just two lanes divided.

And the point is that if traffic generally moves pretty well, nobody will voluntarily pay a toll to drive in the managed lanes, so it won't be that worthwhile.

It can just as easily come to a grinding hault.
