The Connecticut Department of Transportation (CTDOT) Performance Measures Program is managed by the Division of Performance Management, Office of Policy and Strategic Planning, Bureau of Policy and Planning.
The dashboards below are updated monthly to view the latest traffic congestion patterns and trends throughout Connecticut. Currently the data is for May 2022.
Planning Time Index
The two dashboards above are separated by road classes. The first dashboard analyzes planning time index for interstates while the second dashboard view state and US routes. The definition of Planning Time is the total travel time that commuters should plan with enough buffer time to include usual delays plus unexpected.
Planning Time Index is the measured travel time divided by the free flow travel time for a segment of roadway.

While select measures are similar between the two, CTDOT has additional metrics to track safety, infrastructure, highway reliability, mobility (bus, rail, bicycle & pedestrian), air quality, and project delivery.
