the current paper is evaluated the traffic characteristics which is vital for selecting an appropriate geometric design of pavement. The traffic data includes traffic volume, traffic speed, and the percentage of trucks or other large vehicles. Traffic volume is an important basis for determining what improvements, if any, are required on a highway or street facility. Traffic volumes can be expressed in terms of average daily traffic or design hourly volumes. These volumes must be used to calculate the service flow rate, which is typically used for evaluations of geometric design alternatives. This study was found the variability of traffic volumes by vehicle classification. It is discussed the traffic volume in terms of statistics. The purpose of this study is to demonstrate how to estimate daily traffic volumes in peak hours which is selected 3-hour-vehicles counts and also identifying, collecting the data, and analyzing it. This study has counted more than 12179 vehicles for 3 hours for each observation period is 15 min. It is distributed as follows; 9035 cars, 137 taxies, 1710 Light vehicle, 755 heavy vehicles, 86 bus, 456 minibusses. It is found the percentage of cars 75% in one location site and it is selected the highest percentage of vehicles.
