  • Abstract:
    The Nebraska Department of Roads, in cooperation with the Federal Highway Administration, collected and analyzed data at 61 continuous traffic count locations in 2008. Of these 61 locations, 38 are on rural state and federal highway~, 8 on low volume rural roads, 2 on city streets in Grand Island, 3 on city streets in Lincoln, 7 on city streets in Omaha, 1 on the Interstate in South Sioux City, 1 on a city street in Scottsbluff, and 1 on a city street in Holdrege. Most of our machines have been converted to collect data on vehicle type, not just volume. As a result, continuous classification data is available at the majority of our stations. Short-term manual vehicle classification data was collected during 2008 at many of the remaining permanent continuous traffic counters. A traffic counter detects each passing vehicle and records hourly totals electronically. This information is retrieved periodically over the telephone lines by the Planning and Project Development Division of the Nebraska Department of Roads. Here the information is processed into Average Daily Traffic (ADT) figures. Some of the uses of these ADT values are determination of design standards, classification of highways, development of improvement programs and safety programs. Another important use of the information provided by these permanent traffic counters is to adjust many statewide 24 and 48 hour machine counts and 8-hour manual counts to annual average daily traffic volumes. The tables and graphs on the following pages are a summary of the more detailed data presented in this report.
