Michigan DOT's non-trunkline federal aid (NTFA) traffic monitoring program relies heavily on local agencies to support MDOT’s data collection efforts. Leveraging MS2's agency-to-agency tool, MDOT has been able to incorporate a large proportion of their local agency data into their TDMS system. Local agencies can also use the feature to obtain data from the state DOT.

Full Network AADT Estimation Using Probe Data - Case Study
High-quality traffic data is critical for transportation planning and traffic operations. Traditional traffic monitoring programs include continuous and short-duration count collection. Due to resource constraints, traffic count coverage has always been insufficient. With the increasing ratio of probe vehicles in the traffic stream, the number of observed probes can be combined with other data sources (such as roadway characteristics, weather, and temporal information) using machine learning (ML) to produce ubiquitous traffic volume estimates with high accuracy. This presentation will demonstrate the estimation of Annual Average Daily Traffic (AADT) using two approaches. The estimates can be used to supplement the traffic statistics derived from the traditional source. The addition of probe data will bring many benefits to the traffic monitoring programs, including more objective traffic segmentation and more accurate HPMS traffic reporting.
