This website http://arcims.urscorp.com/HOV/ is a central clearinghouse that houses a comprehensive and interactive database of existing and planned HOV facilities in North America and American territories, broken out by Freeway and Arterial classification, and a repository of significant and relevant documents and products related to HOV facilities. The HOV Clearinghouse is also intended to facilitate the sharing of information among practitioners and the dissemination of innovative tools, processes, problem solving efforts and capacity building efforts to assist HOV practitioners in performing their duties and achieving the goals and objectives of their respective HOV facilities. The development of the HOV Clearinghouse is sponsored by the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) and the HOV Pooled-Fund Study.
For an inventory of North America's HOV facilities, you can download these PDF documents. These lists are maintained by Mr. Chuck Fuhs, Senior Project Manager with Parsons Brinckerhoff. Please contact the local transportation authority or state department of transportation for additional details:
