Motorists paying for trip time reliability in toll managed lanes - FL/I-95 Express featured as Fitch Ratings case studyBy Peter Samuel on April 4, 2012
A 'special report' on toll managed lanes by Fitch Ratings finds that they maintain substantial traffic at uncongested times, apparently based on their promise of more predictability in trip times. To capture this idea the report is headlined "Paying for predictability: US Managed Lanes Projects."
Toll express lanes on I-95 north of Miami are described as "very impressive" and as "accomplishing almost everything that was hoped for them" and as "very close to forecast" by Robert (Bob) Poole.
Tolling is scheduled to begin in the two southbound express lanes on the far left side of FL/I-95 between the Golden Glades Interchange and downtown Miami Friday January 15 05:30. Tolls have been collected on two express lanes northbound in the afternoons since December 5 2008.
