Traffic Counting in East Goshen

In the next few weeks, the Delaware Valley Regional Planning Commission (DVRPC) will be performing traffic counts in your municipality.

DVRPC routinely collects travel volume information in the nine counties comprising the Philadelphia metropolitan area.   Counts are typically collected at the request of your state DOT to fulfill Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) program requirements, at the request of the county planning/engineering office, or in support of planning staff evaluating transportation system performance or improvements.  This involves DVRPC staff laying a rubber tube across roadway facilities for approximately 48 hours (to gather daily traffic volumes) or manually recording traffic from a vehicle parked near an intersection (to gather turning movement information).  These efforts will not interfere with normal traffic operations on these facilities.

We invite you to visit the traffic counting section of our website (www.dvrpc.org), where all of our traffic count information is available to the public.  Once on our website, simply choose Products and Services | Traffic Counts from the Resources menu.  You will be offered a choice of viewing a map of all of our traffic count locations or searching counts by county, municipality or road name.

The Office of Travel Monitoring at DVRPC offers a full range of travel monitoring.  These include traffic counting, speed / delay surveys, and user surveys.   If you have a need for these types of services, please contact your county planning/engineering office to coordinate a request. Should you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me at 215-238-2814 (email: sbrady@dvrpc.org).
