2015 Set Record High for Roadway Traffic
​It had been expected but now it is official: The Federal Highway Administration said U.S. traffic volume in 2015 set an all-time annual high for vehicle miles traveled, a record that underscores the rising demand on roadway infrastructure.

The FHWA said preliminary data from its monthly “Traffic Volume Trends” report showed VMTs reached 3.148 trillion miles last year, up 3.5 percent from 2014. “For a sense of scale, 3.148 trillion miles is roughly the same distance as 337 round trips from Earth to Pluto,” the agency said.
