Indiana Mobility Reports




This study is based upon work supported by the ASPIRE award, an Engineering Research Center program by the National Science Foundation (NSF), grant no. EEC-1941524, and the Joint Transportation Research Program administered by the Indiana Department of Transportation and Purdue University.

The following links show videos developed by processing approximately 103 billion NOAA HRRR weather records and 503 billion connected vehicle records. They demonstrate the impact of the December 2022 winter storm across 11 states on nearly 2,900 miles of Interstate 80 ( and across 10 states on nearly 2,170 miles of Interstate 70 (

Additionally, a video demonstrating the impact of the December 2022 winter storm on roadway friction in the Chicago area is shown here


In January 2023, Wejo Data Services Inc. provided Purdue with a national data set comprised of approximately 503 billion connected vehicle records covering all 50 states for the month of December 2022. The goal of the evaluation data set was to create a series of summary graphics to evaluate the scalability of work zone/winter weather analytics graphics and electric/hybrid vehicle counts at a national level as well as visualize the mobility impacts of winter weather activity on the national interstate network. This report illustrates several performance measures developed using this dataset for all interstate routes, both state wise and cross-country. Statewide graphics are presented for each interstate in the 50 states. There are also a series of multi-state graphics for I-5, I-10, I-15, I-35, I-55, I-65, I-75, I-80, I-90, and I-95 and selected other routes that witnessed winter storm impacts. Performance measures include absolute and normalized trip counts classified by type of trip (electric vehicle or hybrid vehicle or internal combustion engine vehicle), weekly heatmaps based on vehicle speed (for the two-week period from December 12-25, 2022) and finally, speed profiles by interstate mile markers. Traffic tickers depicting miles of congestion as well as mile-hours of congestion for the national interstate network and selected multi-state routes are also included to provide a unified visual of nationwide mobility impact of recurring congestion as well as non-recurring congestion caused by winter weather. The generated performance measures can be found in the supplemental files.
