According to statistics furnished by Lauren Hatchell, public information specialist with the Florida Department of Transportation, the computed Annual Average Daily Traffic for 2011 showed that 15,900 traveled the section of U.S. 27 between the intersection of U.S. 98 and State Road 60 on a daily basis. Of those vehicles, 21.5 percent consisted of semi tractor-trailer trucks, or 3,440 trucks.
Over the past five years, these figures have remained steady, with the flow of traffic both north and southbound on a par with one another, or within several hundred between the two directions. For example, in 2010, 8,200 vehicles traveled northbound vs. 7,900 that drove southbound. Since 2007, these figures have remained steady. From 2007 to 2011, the percentage of truck traffic has remained between 21.5-21.70 percent; there was a spike to 23.70 percent in 2008.
