The I-95 Vehicle Probe Project is a groundbreaking initiative providing comprehensive and continuous travel time information on freeways and arterials using probe technology. July 1, 2011 marked the start of the fourth year (Coalition Project Year 19) that Vehicle Probe Project (VPP) data is being provided to our members.

There are now 7,000 centerline freeway miles, more than 20,000 freeway and arterial miles in all, including continuous coverage of the I-95 corridor from New Jersey through Florida. Coverage also exists in Rhode Island. The network includes full coverage of freeways and major arterials in North Carolina and the Tidewater area of Virginia, full or nearly full coverage of limited access roads in New Jersey, Maryland and South Carolina and the northern and eastern portions of Florida. In addition, coverage now includes ramps at 160 major highway-to-highway interchanges, with all states having interchanges included except Georgia.

Numerous Uses for the Data – I-95 Corridor Coalition member agencies have found many uses for the vehicle probe data, including:

  • Travel Information for 511 (web and phone) Systems, Dynamic Message Signs, and Kiosks
  • Travel Time Calculations for Message Boards
  • Performance Measures and Travel Time Reliability Support
  • Traffic Pattern Observations (in-state and multi-state)
