If your work includes Site Selection for Commercial Real Estate, or you’ve been scouting sites for your own business’s next location, you’ve probably attempted to find information that provides traffic counts in front of the site. The good news is - much of this data has been conveniently integrated into interactive GIS maps by state transportation departments. The bad news is - it can be a real pain to find them. Even when you do, the maps are often updated, moved, or buried under layers of unrelated pages.
After pulling what’s left of our hair out trying to keep track of these maps, we built this handy tool using Esri’s ArcGis platform. Just click on the Kinetic Bridge icon on the state capitol and you will be magically transported to that state’s traffic count map. Easy day. Keep in mind that some states have more comprehensive and more recent data than others. Some only cover state highways and major roads, so you may have to search for traffic counts by city to find more granular data that covers secondary roads. If you are having trouble locating a traffic count map for your city, just shoot us a quick email and we’ll be happy to help. We will be adding foreign traffic count maps soon, so if your business takes you outside the U.S., sign up for updates and we’ll let you know when that happens.
