Originator Minnesota Department of Transportation
Title Heavy Commercial Annual Average Traffic Segments in Minnesota
Abstract HCAADT represents current (most recent) Heavy Commercial Annual Average Daily Traffic on sampled road systems. This information is displayed using the SDW_INCDT.TRAFFIC_SEGMENTS_ACTIVE feature class as of the annual HPMS freeze in January. Historical HCAADT is found in another table. Please note that updates to this dataset are on an annual basis, therefore the data may not match ground conditions or may not be available for new roadways.

The HCAADT_HISTORY is not in the Commons yet. Please contact Christy Prentice to get a copy of the HCAADT_HISTORY.
Purpose Determine general estimates of location specific heavy commercial annual average daily traffic (HCAADT) on various route systems to meet FHWA annual reporting and assist in Traffic Forecasting. Counts are taken on portions of the system each year so complete coverage for a given jurisdiction is generally accomplished on a two or four year cycle. More information about the Vehicle Classification Program can be found at: www.dot.state.mn.us/traffic/data/
