Peak Period Congestion on High-Volume Truck Portions of the National Highway System: 2007

NOTES: High-volume truck portions of the National Highway System carry more than 8,500 trucks per day, including freight-hauling long-distance trucks, freight-hauling local trucks, and other trucks with six or more tires. Uncongested segments have volume/service flow ratios between 0 and 0.75. Congested segments have reduced traffic speeds with volume/service flow ratios between 0.75 and 0.95. Highly congested segments are stop-and-go conditions with volume/service flow ratios greater than 0.95.
