Data Management Bureau

The Data Management Bureau is part of the Asset Management & Planning Division, and provides planning and engineering data to NMDOT staff, FHWA, government, businesses, and the public. The Data Management Bureau oversees the Traffic Monitoring Program and the Roadway Inventory Program.

Traffic Monitoring Program

The Traffic Monitoring Program is responsible for data and information regarding traffic volume, vehicle miles of travel (VMT), vehicle classification and truck weight. In order to analyze and publish this data the Traffic Monitoring Program collects traffic data from short duration traffic counts, continuous count stations (CCS) and weigh‐in‐motion systems (WIM). The program tracks traffic trends, vehicle distribution including, but not limited to, motorcycle, passenger car, single unit trucks, combination unit trucks and vehicle weight. NMDOT traffic data is collected in compliance with the FHWA Traffic Monitoring Guide (TMG), the FHWA Highway Performance Monitoring System (HPMS) Field Manual and the NM State Traffic Monitoring Standards. Data collected is used to calculate traffic statistics to include average annual daily traffic (AADT), equivalent single axle loads (ESALs) and statewide vehicle miles of travel (VMT). NMDOT Traffic Monitoring Program collaborates with MPO’s, RTPO’s and local governments that collect traffic data to supplement NMDOT’s collection efforts.
