San Antonio Freeway System
2015 Traffic Statistics

This page last updated December 3, 2016

Below are several charts and maps tabulating Annual Average Daily Traffic (AADT) counts on San Antonio's freeways for 2015.  The comments, rankings and calculations are my own analysis based on raw data from TxDOT.

The stats below are area-wide.  To see traffic counts for just a specific corridor, see that freeway's individual page elsewhere on this site.


Summary

Traffic counts in 2015 were up across most of the city.  The top spot again this year was Loop 410 at Vance Jackson with nearly 260,000 vehicles per day followed closely by Loop 410 at McCullough and Loop 410 at Blanco.  Loop 410 at Evers moved up to fourth place making the entire segment of Loop 410 from Bandera to US 281 the busiest in the region.  All but one of the remaining top 20 locations were on Loop 410 North, I-10 West, or I-35 North.  The outlyer was on US 281 just north of Loop 410.

The top one-year growth location is Loop 1604 at La Cantera; however, this is due to a data anomoly that looks to have vastly undercounted that location last year.  Otherwise, the top 20 locations for year-over-year growth were literally scattered all over the city with no real pattern.

The top 10-year growth spots are also widely scattered.  However, five of the top six are along SH 151.  There is also a cluster on Loop 410 between Bandera and US 281, likely a result of the completion of construction during this time to widen it.  Another small cluster is along Loop 410 South.


General statistics (2010)

Number in parenthesis is the San Antonio Urbanized Area's rank nationally for that category.

  • Centerline miles of freeway: 228 (22)
    • Interstate highway miles: 142
    • US and State highway freeway miles: 86
  • Daily vehicle miles driven on freeways: 20,258,000 (22)
  • Percent of local roads that are freeways: 3.7% (104)
  • Percent of total local daily traffic carried on freeways: 53.1% (20)
