Short-duration traffic count services

We offer short-duration traffic data collection services to other governmental organizations to meet their traffic data collection needs.

We offer the following services. Cost quotes are provided to each customer based on the scope of their project.

Mechanical traffic counts

Mechanical count services include the collection of vehicle volume, speed and classification data through the use of portable traffic counters.

Turning movement counts

Turning movement counts are done by visually counting the vehicle passing through an intersection. By documenting the direction of each vehicles approach and departure from the intersection, the traffic demand on each lane of the roadway can be ascertained. This helps to determine if improvements to the intersection are needed.

Travel time studies

Travel time studies are done for vehicle travel times over roadway segments defined by the customer. These can be performed before and after an improvement project or to assist in identifying roadway improvement priorities.

Traction tires are a special type of tire

manufactured with at least 1/8 of an inch tread. Traction tires are usually marked with a mountain/snowflake symbol, the letters M+S or “All Season.”

Carry chains, practice before leaving

Requiring chains keeps traffic moving during storms rather than closing a pass or roadway.

Prep your car. Fill up your gas tank,

pack jumper cables, ice scraper, warm clothing, snacks and water.
