What the COVID-19 crisis has done to Houston's traffic
HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) -- It's no surprise that with the extended work at home order, we are continuing to see lighter traffic. ABC13 collected data from Transtar comparing traffic before and during the pandemic.
Transtar measured the number of cars using a radar site at I-10/Katy Freeway and Voss, and compared to this time last year, the number of cars passing through this location in a 24-hour period is down approximately 50%.
Looking at single-day data, on March 25, 2019 there were 108,881 cars on the road in a 24-hour period. On March 25, 2020, there were only 39,022.
