Very Congested Traffic at Intersections


CalTrans information indicates that we currently have heavy traffic at many of our local intersections. As can be seen in the following table providing CalTrans data from 2010 (7 years ago), traffic entering and exiting Hwy. 17 at Hamilton Ave. is very heavy. Do you think traffic has gotten much heavier in the past 7 years? We do! We believe a study today would show significantly increased traffic volume at these locations. Note the extremely high total (data that's 10 years old) for the Hwy. 17 southbound off ramp to Hamilton – a number that will only get worse as that will be the most common route for traffic heading for In-N-Out!

* 2007 data


Further Caltrans data from 2015 indicates that traffic at the Hwy. 17/Hamilton corridor is an astounding 164,000 vehicles per day (AADT – Average Annual Daily Total), and projecting 191,000 vehicles per day in the near future – almost 200,000 cars per day!
