Traffic Counts

Transportation Council
Eoin Wrafter, Commissioner


The Dutchess County Transportation Council (DCTC) collects and analyzes data on vehicle travel within Dutchess County. The data is used to measure system performance, assist with road planning, and prioritize project funding. Other government agencies and private businesses also use this information.

The DCTC began its annual traffic monitoring program in 1999. The program is conducted by a contractor on behalf of the DCTC and focuses on county and local roads. Over 800 roadway segments are included in the program and all collected data is consistent with NYSDOT requirements.

Approximately 250 traffic counts are conducted annually, so that each road segment is counted once every three years. Each count includes volume, speed, and vehicle classification (vehicle type) data. The DCTC also receives data from NYSDOT for State highways.

To improve access to the data, the DCTC developed an online database that contains current and historic vehicle volumes. The database allows visitors to search for counts based on the road name, State or County Route number, year of the count, or municipality. It provides a table of relevant data, as well as the ability to export data to a Microsoft Excel or Adobe Acrobat file format.

Additional count data is available on NYSDOT's Traffic Data Viewer interactive map
