Design hour report
Get a list of the year’s 200-highest traffic hours and associated vehicle volumes from our network of traffic recorders permanently installed in Washington State highways. This report helps project designers, planners and traffic engineers estimate the volume of traffic used in the design process.
Note: In 2021 the Peak Hour Report was redesigned and renamed the Design Hour Report.

Slow down – lives are on the line.
In 2022, speeding continued to be a top reason for work zone crashes.
Even one life lost is too many.
Each year about 670 people are killed nationally in highway work zones. In 2022, Washington had six fatal work zone crashes on state roads.
It's in EVERYONE’S best interest.
95% of people hurt in work zones are drivers, their passengers or passing pedestrians, not just our road crews.
