Launch Traffic Mapping Application

Due to current limitations, until further notice all AADT from 2013 or later must be viewed in the map layer named "Draft AADT" and all HCAADT from 2013 or later must be viewed using one of our other data products. The 2015 Draft AADT publication will override the current 2013 official volumes published in the Draft AADT layer. In order to find 2013 AADT for the roadways and areas listed below please refer to the “Past AADT” column in this Draft dataset or contact the Traffic Volume Program. We hope to resolve this issue before May 2016.

  • Trunk Highways Statewide (Interstate, US Highways, State Highways)
  • CSAH and County Roads in the Seven County Metro Area
  • MSAS routes in Metro Area Cities on a two year count cycle (such as Edina, Blaine, Burnsville, Chanhassen, Brooklyn Park, Minnetonka, Ramsey, Cottage Grove, and Victoria)

MnDOT's Traffic Mapping Application is an interactive web tool that allows users to explore spatial traffic data

The interactive map allows you to select where you would like to view data at a larger scale. Many layers are scale dependent and will not appear until the map is zoomed in far enough. Once in the Traffic Mapping Application viewer, click the buttons in the right of the menu bar to help locate data and expand viewer functionality.
