Publication Abstract: 
This report describes research activities regarding the comprehension of the signs and pavement markings for toll roads and managed lanes. Texas Transportation Institute researchers conducted seven focus groups, which explored driver understanding of toll road route markers, open road tolling payment options, pavement marking symbols, and preferential lane pavement markings in four Texas cities. Researchers also reviewed the ongoing development of revisions to the toll road chapter for the Texas Manual of Uniform Traffic Control Devices.
