Congestion Maps & Highlight Aerial Photos
There are two types of congestion maps:
- Bottleneck Maps: Present the findings of the surveys; composite maps for the surveys are included on this site. Congestion is depicted with red and orange arrows, which are linked to associated highlight aerial photographs.
- Comparative Map: These maps are virtually identical, except that red and orange arrows only show where significant degradation has occurred between surveys. Where congestion levels have not changed significantly, black and gray shades are substituted for red and orange colors. Where conditions have improved significantly, green arrows or orange arrows bordered with green are used

Navigating the Maps
- Map Selection: Use the drop-down box in the upper left corner of the MapViewer to select Morning or Evening maps.
- Navigation Tools: Navigation tools are located at the top right corner of the MapViewer and include a Zoom-In, Zoom-Out and Pan buttons. Select one of the tools, and then click on the map to zoom in or out, or click and drag to pan the map. Additional zoom options are available by right-clicking on the map.
- Photo Selection: To view photos, mouse over any of the colored arrows or the helicopter icons and click when the icon changes to the selection hand. The photos will open in a separate window. To return to the map, close the photo window.
- Not All Arrows are Interactive. If a mouse-over does not reveal a "hand-select" icon, photos are not provided for that site.
