Traffic Counts

14 posts in this topic

I know this is random, but does anyone know where I can find daily traffic counts of local roads and intersections? I've googled it and checked the tdot website, but I couldn't find it. Any help would be nice.

Very cool maps! These are the highest traffic counts I could find:

Nashville: Between the Silliman Evans Bridge and Fesslers Lane - 174,060

Memphis: I-240 Southeast Corner near Germantown Rd. - 169,650

Knoxville: I-40 near West Town Mall - 154,660

Chattanooga: I-24 between Downtown and Missionary Ridge - 122,200

That's a lot of traffic! Where's mass transit when we need it?

I think it's fair to say that mass transit is not a priority of TDOT... same goes for GDOT.

I just realized that I go through 4 out of 6 of nashville's busiest intersection. (nolensville & OHB, Harding, thompson and OHB & Franklin)

Can anyone beat that for their daily commutes?

What's interesting/scary is that over the past 20 years, traffic on some freeways has quadrupled. If that rate holds up, our freeways will be either too congested to move or will be ridiculously large.

We need some mass transit NOW. We can build multiple interstates criss-crossing Tennessee, but not a single rail service??
