  • 1/ Travel for all systems other than Interstate are FHWA estimates based on HPMS and other available data.
  • 2/ Includes only roadways open-to-traffic. Prior to 1980, "traveled way" portions of the Federal-Aid systems were included (excluding Interstate) with the system being summarized; these portions of routes provided continuity where gaps existed in the route due primarily to construction. Unconstructed "traveled way" portions of the designated Interstate System were assigned to the "Other" Federal-Aid Primary System category.
  • 3/ Includes the States and the District of Columbia.
  • 4/ The Federal-Aid Primary System existed until 1991. 1992 reflects the Interim National Highway System (NHS); 1993 and 1994 reflect the Proposed NHS; and 1995 onward reflects the approved NHS.
  • 5/ Includes the Secondary and Urban systems prior to 1991. Starting in 1992, includes all functional systems, except those functionally classified as local and minor collector, or as the National Highway System.
