Highway Performance Monitoring System (HPMS)SPC Associate Holding A Traffic Counting key and device

The Highway Performance Monitoring System (HPMS) program is a national level highway information system that includes data on the extent, condition, performance, use and operating characteristics of the nation’s highways.  The HPMS program consists of two parts: Roadway Inventory and Traffic Counting.

Roadway Inventory

Conducted from August-December of each year, the roadway inventory includes the measurement and/or classification of shoulders, lanes and medians as well as noting the number of traffic signals, stop signs and widening obstactles along our region's roadways.  In 2016, SPC inventoried 552 sections of roadway throughout the region.  This inventory includes the measurement and/or classification of shoulders, lanes and medians as well as noting the number of traffic signals, stop signs and widening obstacles.

Traffic Counting

Conducted from March-November of each year,  SPC completes approximately 350 traffic counts per year in the 10-county region.  There are 3 ways SPC collects the count data:

  • Machine Volume- 24 hour volume count via a machine counter with a tube across the road collecting traffic volumes.  This is the most common type.
  • Machine Class- 24 hour classification count via a machine counter with multiple tubes across the road.  This type of count classifies the type of vehicle into 13 different classes based on the distance between their axles.
  • Manual Class- 6 hour (12pm-6pm) vehicle classification count via field observations.  This type of count classifies vehicles into 16 different classes based on their type.

In 2016, SPC completed 228 volume counts and an additional 89 class counts
