1/ Includes the 50 States, the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico. Some differences from other tables may be noted because these are estimated from sample data.

2/ Access control: Full Access Control * preference has been given to through traffic movements by providing interchanges with selected public roads and by prohibiting direct driveway connections. Partial Access Control * preference has been given to through traffic movement. In addition to interchanges there may be some crossings at grade with public roads, but direct private driveway connections have been minimized.
