and other samples to support the Federal Highway Performance Monitoring System. Results are used to determine Vehicle Miles Traveled (VMT) and to develop growth factors for estimating current year counts from known prior year counts. Vehicle classification counts obtained at approximately 35% of the count locations are used. obtained on the State Touring Route System and another 9,+ counts taken for other purposes such as sampling of off system Federal Aid eligible and non-Federal Aid eligible local facilities, county roads, off system bridge counts, at-grade railroad crossing counts, and other samples to support the Federal Highway Performance Monitoring System.
