North Carolina Highway Traffic Volumes

Recommended Posts

I-40 in Durham County is now the most traveled section of highway in North Carolina. The section between Page Road and I-540 saw an annual average daily traffic (AADT) volume of 192,000 vehicles in 2016. This surpassed I-77 in Mecklenburg County - historically the most traveled highway in North Carolina - by 11,000 vehicles in 2016. Two other sections of I-40 in Durham and Wake counties also saw traffic volumes exceed those of I-77 between I-277 and I-85 in 2016.

Below is a table highlighting some traffic volume statistics across North Carolina in 2016.
