Institutional issues provide challenges to implementing congestion pricing strategies. The Congestion Pricing: A Primer on Institutional Issues explores the types of institutional issues that are commonly encountered with priced lanes, zone-based pricing, and parking pricing programs.

Priced Managed Lane Guide

The Priced Managed Lane Guide is intended to be a comprehensive source of collective experience gained from priced managed lanes implemented in the United States through 2012. The Guide presents a wide range of information on priced managed lanes. The purpose of this guide is to assist transportation professionals as they consider, plan, and implement priced managed lanes projects. The Priced Managed Lane Guide also updates the Federal Highway Administration's (FHWA) 2003 Guide for HOT Lane Development.

Other Announcements

VPP Quarterly Report (January - March 2013) - Each quarter, projects authorized under the Value Pricing Pilot Program are updated to provide the most current VPP program information on active projects being studied as well as projects that have been implemented.

This site is intended to provide information about the tolling and pricing programs and provisions available under Title 23 of the United States Code (23 U.S.C.), following enactment of Safe, Accountable, Flexible, Efficient Transportation Equity Act: A Legacy for Users (SAFETEA-LU), and to invite Expressions of Interest from States and/or other public entities. This site contains information on "getting started" by submitting an Expression of Interest for the available tolling authority. An agency can download an Expression of Interest template through this web page, complete it, and re-submit it electronically via e-mail. This site also provides key contacts and links to resources related to tolling and pricing that can be used to support an initiative. Through this site, agencies can understand the tolling and pricing opportunities that now exist and can communicate with the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) in order to assist them in effectively meeting their desired goal(s) for applying for tolling and pricing authority or funding.
