Abstract-- Contraflow lane reversal--the reversal of lanes in
order to temporarily increase the capacity of congested roads--
can effectively mitigate traffic congestion during rush hour
and emergency evacuation. However, contraflow lane reversal
deployed in several cities are designed for specific traffic
patterns at specific hours, and do not adapt to fluctuations
in actual traffic. Motivated by recent advances in autonomous
vehicle technology, we propose a framework for dynamic lane
reversal in which the lane directionality is updated quickly and
automatically in response to instantaneous traffic conditions
recorded by traffic sensors. We analyze the conditions under
