Everything you wanted to know about traffic but were afraid to ask!

MLK overpass vistaDid you know that the Hillsborough MPO routinely collects traffic counts for most major roads in Hillsborough County and its cities? Traffic volumes frequently come into play when questions come up about congestion levels and the impact of future development. They’re also fundamental to forecasting future conditions because predictive “travel demand” models are based in part on existing traffic.

The MPO has compiled traffic counts for many years, drawing on state and local traffic counting programs. More recently, the MPO commissioned its own traffic counts for selected local roads. We have pulled all of these together and made them available in a report now available on the MPO website.
