6.2.6 Reversible Toll Lanes

Guideline Reversible Toll Lane Guideline 1
Title Use of Reversible Toll Lanes on Standard Expressway Cross-Sections
Text Reversible toll lanes should be avoided where possible and excluded from the design of new toll facilities.

For existing barrier system plazas, it is recommended that the use of reversible lanes be discontinued as soon as possible for operations and safety reasons, as soon as ETC participation rates allow. At existing ticket-system plazas, it may be practically impossible to eliminate the use of reversible lanes, as overall operations are slow in these plazas, and additional capacity is often needed regardless of ETC participation.
