Traffic congestion can incur serious costs on society, and reducing these costs is of high importance. This paper assesses the feasibility of a price change or other demand shift on the toll roads in Southern California in alleviating traffic on the public freeways, using California State Road 73 and Interstate 5 as a case study. State Road 73 is found to have the ability to take on additional traffic density, which would increase the flow for all drivers on both Interstate 5 and State Road 73. Alternatives to traditional tolls are also offered as potential solutions to congestion in Southern California.
