Traffic Count Data Collection

In the upcoming weeks, Delaware Valley Regional Planning Commission (DVRPC) will be collecting traffic count data in East Goshen Township.

Where?

Airport Rd Bet Paoli Pk & Greenhill Rd
Paoli Pk Bet Airport Rd & Meadow Dr
Paoli Pk Bet Pa 352 Chester Rd & Line Rd
Strasburg Rd Bet Wyllpen Dr & Dutton Mill Rd

Why?

DVRPC routinely collects travel volume information in the nine counties comprising the Philadelphia metropolitan area.   Counts are typically collected at the request of PennDOT 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.

What’s Involved?

This involves DVRPC staff laying a rubber tube across roadway facilities for approximately 48 hours (to gather daily traffic volumes), mounting video cameras, 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.
