HOV Pilot Project Along US 75 Corridor
In partnership with NCTCOG staff and local jurisdictions, the Texas Department of Transportation has been working to determine an option for the high-occupancy vehicle (HOV) lane along the US 75 corridor. Staff will provide details on a pilot project along this corridor that will evaluate the effectiveness of allowing single-occupant vehicles to utilize the HOV lane while providing an incentive to HOVs.
