Freeway Traffic Trends Update

Before the big I5 closure disrupt the trend, I thought it would be good to revisit the traffic trend data I posted three months ago. Although overall traffic is up slightly since March, both I5 and 99 show year-over-year traffic volume declines:

Although 99 saw a slight rebound, traffic began declining in April once again, and seems to have leveled out at around 137,000 vehicle miles traveled per week. That's about a 3.5% decline from last year:

Traffic patterns will be heavily disrupted for the next few weeks by the I5 repairs, but I hope to return to this dataset at the end of summer once things return to normal.
