Description: The Freight Analysis Framework (FAF5) - Network Links dataset was created from 2017 base year data and was published on April 11, 2022 from the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) and is part of the U.S. Department of Transportation (USDOT)/Bureau of Transportation Statistics (BTS) National Transportation Atlas Database (NTAD). The FAF (Version 5) Network contains 487,384 link features. All link features are topologically connected to permit network pathbuilding and vehicle assignment using a variety of assignment algorithms. The FAF Link and the FAF Node datasets can be used together to create a network. The link features include all roads represented in prior FAF networks, and all roads in the National Highway System (NHS) and the National Highway Freight Network (NHFN) that are currently open to traffic. Other included links provide connections between intersecting routes, and to select intermodal facilities and all U.S. counties. The network consists of over 588,000 miles of equivalent road mileage. The dataset covers the 48 contiguous States plus the District of Columbia, Alaska, and Hawaii.
