Most Traveled Principal Arterials

The U.S. Department of Transportation releases their 2000 series of reports.

Twenty-four urbanized areas had 779 miles of principal arterial highways that operated at a level of 200,000 or more vehicles per day. A table on the website summarizes by route the amount of Interstate and other freeways and expressways that carried 200,000 or more vehicles a day, and the highest daily traffic reported for the route. About 48 miles of these highways carried at least 300,000 vehicles a day. The highest daily traffic of 365,852 vehicles a day was reported along a 12-lane section of I-5 in Orange County, California. On non-Interstate segments, the highest daily traffic of 320,283 vehicles a day was reported along a 10-lane section of U.S. 101 in Los Angeles County, California... The Highway Statistics 2000 has just been released. This is the 55th edition of this annual report, and contains statistical data on motor fuel, motor vehicles, driver licensing, highway-user taxation, State and local highway finance, highway mileage, Federal-aid for highways, and other valuable information.
