VDOT collecting traffic data

If you've wondered why black cables are stretched across area roads lately, they are traffic sensors put in place by VDOT.

The Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) conducts a program where traffic data are gathered from sensors in or along streets and highways and other sources. From these data, estimates of the average number of vehicles that traveled each segment of road and daily vehicle miles traveled for specific groups of facilities and vehicle types are calculated. All of the traffic data publications that VDOT currently produces are available to the public on this web site.
