Monitoring traffic volumes on area roadways is an important tool that helps planners and engineers prioritize roadway improvements.
Annual traffic counts, gathered at over 2,000 locations in the region, show trends and identify areas where traffic may be approaching a roadway’s capacity.
For area realtors, bankers and land developers, traffic count information is equally important when analyzing locations for investment and marketing.
With the recent release of traffic counts collected in 2014, retrieval of multi-year histories of average daily traffic is now a point and click operation. The Knoxville Regional Transportation Planning Organization has developed a web-based map application that delivers several years of data for hundreds of traffic count stations on area roadways.Access the map at knoxtrans.org/traffic-counts.
