% Travel Heavily Congested

This measure is determined by summing the Vehicle Miles Traveled (VMT) on roadways under heavily congested conditions and then dividing by the total system VMT.

The percentage of travel heavily congested decreased in 2019, changing the growth trend between 2015 and 2018. In 2019, it decreased marginally by 0.2 percentage points from 2018 during the peak hour on Florida’s SHS.

Calculation
