At least three new roadways in North Texas will charge drivers for HOV access. But some motorists could end up paying more than someone driving right behind them.
The Regional Transportation Council, which is part of the North Texas Council of Governments, is proposing drivers with at least two passengers in the car pay less than drivers with one passenger, or solo drivers.
The managed HOV lanes -- ones in which drivers pay a toll -- are being built on I-635/LBJ freeway, the DFW Connector project around DFW Airport, and the North Tarrant Express highway project.
The public will get a chance to chime in on the issue at two meetings -- Tuesday night in Richardson, and Wednesday night in Arlington.
Drivers who use the managed toll lanes could also pay more during peak rush hour times -- with a guaranteed "minimum speed" set by the council. If some problem affects the speed of the HOV lanes, drivers could get a discount.
Details of the project will be presented to the public. Click below for more information on the three road projects.
