MnPASS Express Lanes
MnPASS Express Lanes help maintain traffic flow, reduce congestion and give drivers a safe, reliable commute when they pay an electronic fee.
Zipper merge occurs when motorists use both lanes of traffic until reaching the defined merge area, and then alternate in "zipper" fashion into the open lane. This method reduces differences in speeds between the two lanes, reduces the overall length of traffic backup by as much as 40 percent, and reduces congestion on freeway interchanges.
