Story Idea #4
It is approaching nearly 2 years since the The I-394 MnPASS Express Lanes were opened. The first of its kind in Minnesota, MnPASS allowed solo drivers to pay a fee for usage of the road's high occupancy vehicle lane. How has MnPass performed in Mn/DOT's goal of easing congestion and managing rush hour traffic flow? Are there any plans to establish new MnPass lanes on other roads in the state?
