HRTPO has recently released the Volumes, Speeds, and Congestion on Major Roadways in Hampton Roads draft report.
HRTPO has annually prepared a report detailing average weekday traffic volumes for major roadways in Hampton Roads since 2006. This document continues that effort by detailing regional traffic volumes for the years 2009-2014. The traffic volume data included in this document is collected from a variety of sources, including the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT), regional bridge and tunnel facilities, and tolled facilities. Data is also included from localities in Hampton Roads that maintain their own traffic count programs, including Hampton, Newport News, Suffolk, and Virginia Beach.
Since 2012, HRTPO has also included in this document an analysis of roadway speed data collected by INRIX. INRIX collects this speed data using millions of probe vehicles, including taxis, delivery vans, fleet vehicles, trucks, and smartphone users. Peak period congestion data and maps are also included in this report, based on the speed and traffic volume data.
This report is produced as part of the region’s Congestion Management Process (CMP). The Congestion Management Process is an on-going effort that identifies, develops, evaluates, and implements transportation strategies to enhance mobility regionwide. More information about the Hampton Roads Congestion Management Process is available on HRTPO’s website at http://www.hrtpo.org/page/congestion-management .
