Data Collection Underway The study team began collecting data in October 2014 to better understand current conditions throughout the entire corridor study area. Traffic volumes were counted at a number of critical intersections and points in between, especially during periods of peak traffic demand. Data has been compiled on turning movements, pedestrian and truck volumes, vehicle speeds, and the distribution of traffic by time of day and by direction of travel. We have also analyzed crash statistics for the previous 5 years, as well as observing traffic in the field, to identify any problem areas or unusual patterns. Finally, the study team has reviewed all relevant transportation and land use plans, proposed projects, and traffic forecasts to learn about pending changes so we can anticipate and appropriately address future conditions.
