San Antonio Freeway System
2022 Traffic Statistics

This page last updated September 10, 2023

Below are charts and maps tabulating Annual Average Daily Traffic (AADT) counts on San Antonio's freeways for 2022. The comments, rankings and calculations are the author's own analysis based on raw data from TxDOT.

The stats below are area-wide. For traffic counts only on a specific corridor, see that freeway's individual page elsewhere on this site.


Summary

Traffic counts in 2022 mostly showed a continued post-pandemic recovery, with about half of the counter locations now showing volumes equal to or greater than 2019, and another 22 within 5% of their 2019 counts.

There was no change in the top six rankings since last year, with all but one being on Loop 410. The top spot continues to be Loop 410 near Nacogdoches, with over 300,000 vehicles per day. Because this counter location was new last year, there isn't a pre-pandemic count for comparison, but it did increase 1.75% over last year, and is slightly more than the top spot in 2019, which was 305,674 at Loop 410 and Blanco.

Like last year, all of the top 20 traffic counts are located on Loop 410 North, I-35 North, and I-10 West.

With the pandemic recovery still continuing in 2021, I'm still comparing to the pre-pandemic numbers in 2019. The top growth spots since then are widely scattered. The top growth location was US 281 just inside Loop 1604, possibly attributable to the completion of phase 1 of the US 281 expansion project in 2022. The number two spot for the second year in a row was I-35 near Fischer Rd., likely due to a new Amazon center and other industrial development nearby. Most of the remaining top 20 locations were in one of three clusters: the Loop 1604 West and SH 151 corridors, the I-10 West corridor outside Loop 410, and I-35 North in the Schertz area. Two remaining locations were outliers: Loop 1604 near Pat Booker Rd., and I-10 near Loop 1604 on the East Side.

Like with the three-year growth list, the list of top growth locations over the last decade has a large cluster of spots in the Loop 1604 West and SH 151 corridors, I-35 at Fischer, I-10 on the far northwest side, and I-10 East near Loop 1604. However, additional locations along I-10 East outside Loop 410 also made the list, and there was a cluster of locations along eastern Wurzbach Pkwy.

As a reminder, TxDOT made some sigificant changes to traffic counter locations last year, so many locations don't have data from previous years.
