Some of the indicators shown in this section are: lane miles on State Highway System, centerline miles and lane miles on all Florida public roads. These indicators will be
updated annually as the reports become available. This usually occurs about six months after the end of the year. Centerline miles refers to the
length of the road in miles. Lane miles are the product of centerline miles and
the number of lanes.
Compared to historical
trends, new roadway construction is slowing . Most construction work is roadway rehabilitation and/or widening. The new lane miles add capacity and attempt to improve driving conditions for Florida’s motorists.
The Federal Highway Administration reports the number of
centerline miles and lane miles annually. The Highway Statistics Series is
available online at http://www.fhwa.dot.gov/ohim/ohimstat.htm. This resource
lists the mileage by ownership or functional classification.
The Florida Department of Transportation’s Transportation
Statistics Office also gathers and reports roadway mileage twice per year. The
number of miles is available by road classification, such as - interstate, toll
roads, etc. For more information on highway infrastructure, visit http://www.dot.state.fl.us/planning/statistics/#resources.
