HOV lanes. Requires the Commonwealth Transportation Commissioner, for HOV lanes designated by the Commonwealth Transportation Board, to develop and implement a process whereby (i) the times of day during which HOV restrictions are in place may be applicable either earlier or later on any day when traffic volume on the affected facility increases markedly either prior to or after the hours when HOV restrictions would otherwise apply and (ii) the direction of traffic flow on HOV facilities with reversible lanes may be reversed at any time when so doing would expedite the movement of traffic on parallel lanes not subject to HOV restrictions.
