Vehicle Miles Traveled (VMT)

Snow Plow

Snow Plow, Taylor Hwy. Dennis Bishop, Alaska DOT&PF.

Daily VMT (DVMT) on a given traffic section is determined by multiplying the estimated Annual Average Daily Traffic (AADT) by the length of that traffic section. The individual DVMT for all road sections is summed to reach an overall DVMT for the entire Alaska Roadway system. The Annual VMT represented below for each year is calculated by multiplying the Alaska roadway system DVMT by 365. This data item is included in Alaska's annual HPMS submittal and is a factor in determining federal transportation funding levels.
