The Traffic Volume Maps show the Annual Average Daily Traffic (AADT) numbers displayed at various locations on Maryland's roadways. Traffic counts are reported as the number of vehicles expected to pass a given location on an average day of the year for all traffic-counting stations in the state. Traffic volume data is collected from more than 3,000 Program Count stations and 79 Automatic Traffic Recorders (ATRs) located throughout Maryland. Program Count data is collected for both directions at regular locations on a three-year cycle (one-third of these are counted each year). The other two-thirds are factored based on the past yearly growth of an associated ATR. Counters are placed for 48 hours on a Monday or Tuesday and are picked up that Thursday or Friday, respectively. The ATR and toll count data is collected on a continuous basis. The toll station data is provided by Maryland Transportation Authority.
