RTP Phase 1 Project Description More than 5 miles of HOV lanes were constructed on Loop 101 (Pima Freeway) between Tatum Boulevard and Princess Drive in Phoenix and Scottsdale. Along with the HOV lanes, which were constructed in the median of the freeway, the project also included a concrete median barrier, median lighting and other improvements.
Project Benefits The HOV lanes connected with HOV lanes on State Route 51. They improve traffic flow, encourage carpooling and expand the regional transit network. Vehicles carrying two or more occupants, Valley Metro buses, certified alternative-fuel vehicles, motorcycles and emergency vehicles can use HOV lanes from 6 to 9 a.m. and 3 to 7 p.m. Monday through Friday. All vehicles can use HOV lanes at all other times.
