Transportation: Highway Performance Monitoring System

SPC Associate Holding A Traffic Counting key and deviceThe Highway Performance Monitoring System (HPMS) is a federal program developed in 1978 as a continuing database to replace special biennial condition studies that had been conducted by the States since 1965. The HPMS is a national level highway information system that includes data on the extent, condition, performance, use, and operating characteristics of the Nation's highways. It is a cooperative effort among state highway agencies, local governments, and metropolitan planning organizations to collect Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) specified data including traffic counts for sample sections of roadways.

HPMS benefits southwestern Pennsylvania by:

  • performing traffic counts
  • providing data for apportionment of federal funds to the states
  • providing justification for developing legislative initiatives to support increases in federal aid funding and the development of the National Highway System (NHS)
  • serving as a data source for various FHWA and state publications
    • Highway Statistics
    • Our Nation's Highways
    • The Status of the Nation's Highways, Bridges, and Transit: Conditions and Performance (the biennial reports to Congress mandated in 1965)
  • documenting the condition and needs of our highway system

In 2014, SPC completed 400 machine counts and 73 manual counts in the 10-county region. The count results showed that Washington and Greene counties in particular are areas experiencing an increase in truck traffic due to natural gas extraction and related activities. There has been roughly a 15% increase in truck traffic in these counties in the past 3 years.

For more information on the Highway Performance Monitoring System or traffic counts, contact Cort McCombs at (412) 391-5590 x330 or e-mail cmccombs@spcregion.org.

SPC collects traffic count data for the Highway Performance Monitoring Program, a federal program designed to assess the performance and characteristics of our nation’s highways. SPC receives the directives from PennDOT and the data is used to make important decisions about highway design, safety, air quality conformity highway planning. The data collected is used by the Federal Highway Administration to conduct research for congestion management, to track statistics, and to provide required reports on the status of the US highway system's condition and performanceto Congress.
