% Miles Meeting Level of Service Targets

The percent of miles meeting Level of Service (LOS) targets is determined by summing the centerline miles of roadway operating at or above FDOT LOS targets and then dividing by the total system centerline miles.

Between 2014 and 2019, Florida's roadways on the SHS, in general, experienced slight decreases in the percentage of miles meeting the acceptable LOS target during peak hour and peak period. The percentage of miles meeting LOS targets was on par with 2018.

Methodology

Methodology: % Miles Meeting Level of Service Targets

The percent of miles meeting LOS targets is determined by summing the centerline miles of roadway operating acceptably and then dividing by the total system centerline miles. “Acceptably” is defined as LOS D for all urbanized areas and LOS C for all other areas. 5:00 p.m.-6:00 p.m. on a weekday is considered as peak hour; 4:00 p.m.-6:00 p.m. on a weekday is considered as peak period.

Calculation

`(Σ ("Segment Length during Peak Performance" ≥ "Acceptable LOS Target Threshold"))/(Σ " Segment Length") ×100`
