Please note that the Vehicle Kilometres Travelled (VKT) data represents a full month based on an average day (workdays and weekends). Month over month comparisons in VKT data (i.e., Jan. '01 to Jan. '02) should take into account the ratio of Number of Workdays to Total Days in each month. Fewer workdays will have the effect of lowering VKT. Consideration should also be made for extension of the highway since opening in 1997.
