91 Express Lanes
Orange County, California
Ninety-One Express Lanes is the world's first automated toll road; the first implementation of congestion pricing on a U.S. toll facility; and the first toll road to be privately financed in the U.S. in more than 50 years. Upon completion of construction the developer and builder, the California Private Transportation Company, transferred the project's ownership to Caltrans and now leases the facility back from the agency for 35 years.
