Investigation into Economic Feasibility of Exclusive Truck Lanes

About this Document

Safety and freight mobility efficiency are the main drivers for considering exclusive truck lane (ETL) implementation. The underlying hypothesis is that physically separating heavy tmcks
from light vehicles will improve highway safety by reducing the number of truck-related crashes. Safety analysis is a critical element in evaluating the feasibility of ETL implementation. This
white paper presents a synthesis of potential approaches in evaluating the safety impacts of ETL implementation.
