Atlanta, GA Urbanized Area Congestion Report

In the line graphs below, FHWA uses Data Collection Year instead of Data Reporting Year to represent snapshot condition/performance at the time the data was collected. More information

The Atlanta, GA Urbanized Area covers parts of Georgia. Targets are agreed upon by several transportation agencies and apply to the entire area.

  • Annual Hours of Peak-Hour Excessive Delay (PHED) Per Capita

    • Trend through 2021

      Desired trend: ↓

      Atlanta, GA Annual Hours of Excessive Delay Per Capita


  • Annual Hours of Peak-Hour Excessive Delay (PHED) Per Capita 2017 2018 2019 2020 2021
    Condition/Performance -- -- 18.9 9.6 --
    Targets -- -- -- -- 24.6
  • Behind the data: For the first performance period only, baseline condition and 2-year targets are not required for the Peak-Hour Excessive Delay measure.


  • Annual Hours of Peak-Hour Excessive Delay (PHED) Per Capita

    (Georgia) Using the monthly values for PHED measure from January 2016 to December 2017, a linear trend line analysis was conducted. Adopting a conservative approach, the lower end of the projected 4-year range is selected as the target for this measure. A detailed report was prepared by Georgia Department of Transportation (GDOT) that provides an overview of the “National Performance Management Measures for Assessing Performance of the National Highway System, Freight Movement on the Interstate System, and Congestion Mitigation and Air Quality Improvement Program (CMAQ) Final Rule”, the methodology to calculate the measures included in the rule, target setting process as well as the recommended 2 and 4-year performance targets.

    (Georgia) Using the ACS Commute to Work data, the 2-year condition was compared to the 2-year target. A 2-year condition at 23.2% of Non-SOV percentage within the Atlanta urbanized area is higher than the 2-year target at 22.1%, which demonstrates that the target is being met.
