Traffic Counts

Traffic volumes are measured for all roads within McLennan County classified as a collector, arterial or freeway. These counts are referred to as saturation counts and are performed once every five years. Saturation counts are performed for the MPO by the Texas Department of Transportation.

Difference between Average Daily Traffic (ADT) and Saturation Counts

The saturation counts measure only the number of axles divided by two. As a result, roadways with a large number of trucks will be overcounted. ADT takes into account the number of trucks and is a more accurate reflection of the number of vehicles. Notwithstanding, the saturation counts provide the MPO with trend data and are also the only consistent traffic data for roads off of the state highway system.
