The purpose of this report is to document the existing 2016 daily LOS along major roadways in the five counties within Florida Department of Transportation District Four (FDOT D4): Broward, Palm Beach, Martin, St. Lucie, and Indian River.  The 2016 existing LOS are derived for:

  • Florida’s Turnpike System - obtained from the Florida’s Turnpike Enterprise (FTE), and
  • Other major county and city roadways. 

This report presents usage of LOS information and summarizes data, methodology, and references utilized to develop LOS and LOS maps of the five counties.
