Installing HOV Sensors and How It Affects You

0

LAS VEGAS (KLAS)– Beginning the night of June 26, new data sensors will begin to be installed along I-15 and US 95, which will be used in a multi-year study HOV lanes in southern Nevada.

A total of 17 sensor locations are to be installed until the beginning of August. The sensors count vehicles and detect the number of occupants. Each location will require three to five days of night lane restrictions for installation and testing. The installation of these sensors is in coordination with the Nevada Department of Transportation (NDOT) and FAST.

NDOT’s HOV study began in 2019, but data collection was interrupted by unpredictable pandemic dive patterns in early 2020. The study will examine historical HOV pathways and general purpose pathways, and will take consider national best practices to determine a potential pilot program to validate pilot operating hours.

NDOT and its partners will monitor pilot hours every three months for the next 18 months, reviewing effectiveness and potential changes. All work will take place overnight and will require the closure of lanes and shoulders. Here is a list of work dates, but the schedule is subject to change.
