Regional Traffic Count Program

An important data source for DRCOG transportation planning efforts is the Regional Traffic Count Program. DRCOG provides all-day, total traffic volume data for 2012-2015, as available. The counts are made available to DRCOG from CDOT, local governments and toll road authorities – DRCOG does not collect traffic counts. A downloadable spreadsheet of 24-hour total volumes is provided in Excel format.

Traffic Forecasts

In addition to total traffic volume data, DRCOG provides average weekday daily traffic (AwDT) traffic volume forecasts for roadways on the Regional Transportation Plan. The available forecast years are those used in the air quality conformity process - 2015, 2025, 2035, and 2040. Forecasts can also be provided for minor arterials contained in the background networks.

To receive a traffic forecast, please identify the roadway segment in question and provide current day hourly traffic volume by direction. The forecasts are at no charge for DRCOG members and transportation partner agencies. A fee is charged for all other requests.
