Knoxville Region Traffic Count Program

The TPO conducts traffic counts at over 300 locations in Knox and Blount Counties. These annual counts supplement those collected by the Tennessee Department of Transportation at several thousand other locations across the 10-county region.

About the Counts

The traffic count data are given in the standard "Average Daily Traffic" format, which represents the volume of traffic, in both directions, at a particular location on an average day during that particular year. The average traffic is computed by taking the raw traffic count data that is collected usually over a 24-hour period and then adjusting it by factors to account for daily and seasonal variations.

Traffic Count Maps

PDF files showing MPC and TDOT counts at stations across Knox and Blount Counties are available for 2007-2014. Maps are 36” tall by 48” wide.

Note: With the availability of regional traffic counts via a web map, the traffic count map product has been discontinued.
