Congestion Pricing -- For Freeways Too
TTLA didn't provide a full enough scope when recently noting a new RAND study about congestion pricing.
The same day of that post, the L.A. Times ran this story, "L.A. County Considers Congestion Pricing for 110 and 10 Freeways."
Within the piece, writer Dan Weikel uses the below definition -- TTLA's emphasis added:
Like other tollways in Southern California, officials plan to use congestion-based pricing -- tolls that rise and fall in direct relation to the volume of traffic -- to keep individual motorists, carpools, van pools and buses in the high-occupancy lanes at a minimum speed of 45 mph, even during rush hour.
The next day, Tim Rutten, the great LAT columnist, cited the RAND study and weighed in against congestion pricing. Rutten's piece, and the two dozen reader comments it generated, is here.
There was also a map and more debate at Streetsblog Los Angeles.
And over at LAist, there's a list posted with dates, times, and addresses of upcoming public comment meetings around the county. Four still remain, including one tonight (Monday, June 15) in Carson.
