San Antonio Freeway System
2016 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 2016. 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 2016 were up across most of the city. A notable exception was on I-10 West, were all counts were down. The top spot this year was Loop 410 at Blanco with over 288,000 vehicles per day followed closely by Loop 410 at McCullough. Loop 410 at Vance-Jackson and at Evers were third and fourth, thus 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 four one-year growth locations are all on Wurzbach Parkway; this is almost certainly a result of the completion of the parkway between Starcrest and West Ave. in 2015. All but three of the one-year growth locations were on the northeast side.

The top 10-year growth spots are also widely scattered. However, four of the top five are along SH 151 and six are along Loop 410 from SH 151 to I-35 North. The remainder are scattered in each quadrant of the city.


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)
