Hard Shoulder Running (HSR)

Hard Shoulder Running (HSR) is an innovative strategy for squeezing additional capacity out of the existing infrastructure, targeting facilities with short-duration peak periods where congestion is noticeable. Using the recent HSR design B&N has completed in Ohio, conversations with state DOTs who have implemented HSR, and a tour of Michigan's HSR corridor, this presentation will define HSR and provide lessons learned during design (ITS, Traffic Analysis, Geometric) and implementation (best strategies, DMS options, start-up options). This presentation also will include a detailed discussion about the required safety analysis that was closely coordinated with FHWA.
