Data and Maps: Traffic Safety and Congestion Management Countywide

CCTA and its regional partner agencies are using real-time traffic data to help manage congestion on county roadways. This website shares some of the key data that informs CCTA’s decision-making around transportation challenges. It also provides tools for you to make informed decisions about how and when you travel.

Traffic Safety at CCTA: Countywide Vision Zero

Safe travel for all is the top priority at CCTA. Alongside our local partners, we have developed the framework for Vision Zero, which views transportation-related fatalities as preventable, not inevitable. The data shown here is the basis for our work to ensure the well-being of travelers of all ages and abilities, including people walking and bicycling.
Delve into the realm of traffic analysis by comparing the incident data from the current month with the previous quarter. The heatmap background represents the previous quarter's incidents. The circles represent last month's incidents with the color being the incident severity and size representing incident duration. Click on any incident (circle) for details.
This comparative exploration allows us to discern patterns, trends, and noteworthy shifts in traffic conditions. This proactive approach ensures that our congestion management strategies evolve and adapt to the dynamic nature of transportation, ultimately resulting in enhanced commuting experiences for all.
