KEY: dwt = deadweight tons. NA = Not available in the Texas Transportation Institute 2007 Annual Urban Mobility Study.
1 The most recent year for which data on landside annual traffic delay are available is 2005. Annual delay per traveler equals extra travel time for peak-period travel during the year divided by the number of travelers who begin a trip during the peak period (6 to 9 a.m. and 4 to 7 p.m.). These peak-period travel times are compared wih times for free-flow speeds (60 mph on freeways and 35 mph on principal arterials).
2 San Francisco Bay Area ports: Oakland, Redwood City, Richmond, San Francisco, and Stockton.
3 Philadelphia/Delaware River ports: Philadelphia, Paulsboro, Marcus Hook, Camden-Gloucester, Chester, and Wilmington.
4 Virginia ports: Norfolk, Richmond, and Newport News.
5 Columbia River ports: Portland, Longview, Vancouver, and Kalama.
