More information about the webinar is below. Feel free to submit questions for our presenters before the webinar as well.


What will this webinar cover?

The next webinar will be an opportunity to raise any questions of the NPMRDS team related to the use of the data set, and to discuss recent updates. Additional speakers and content are being finalized and will be announced closer to the webinar.


What is the NPMRDS?

The NPMRDS provides average travel times on the National Highway System (NHS) and is used in calculating four of the measures in the System Performance/Freight/CMAQ performance measures final rule. The NPMRDS is a monthly archive of average travel times, reported every 5 minutes when data is available, on the National Highway System.  The travel times are based on vehicle probe-based data.  Separate average travel times are included for “all traffic”, freight and passenger travel.  FHWA provides access to the NPMRDS to our State DOT and MPO partners for their performance management activities.  Average travel times have been collected monthly since July 2013.
