As a result of the outlet mall and other stores located in the area, Wheeler Ridge Road of the 5 sees approximately 8,000 cars an hour during peak times. However, this is a pittance compared to the traffic on the 99, which sees more than 12,000 vehicles per hour at peak times and more than 150,000 vehicles per month on average at the 58/99 interchange near downtown.
