Excellence Award Winners
To alleviate congestion and delays on the I-394 corridor in Minneapolis, Mn/DOT converted underutilized high occupancy vehicle lanes to high occupancy toll (HOT) lanes. It is the first HOT lane project to use open-road tolling on a road where there is no barrier separating the HOT lanes from the general purpose traffic lanes.
