The FRCOG has operated and maintained traffic counting equipment since 1991, primarily for the purpose of conducting state-requested counts required by our contract with the Massachusetts Highway Department. However, fulfilling this obligation has taken only a portion of the traffic counting season, making it possible for us to use the equipment to conduct local traffic counts at no charge to our communities and support ongoing planning studies. The FRCOG operates ten Jamar Trax automatic traffic recorders which have the capability to collect vehicle classification and speed data at most locations. The count season typically runs between April and November during which time anywhere between 80 and 120 counts can be completed. Each count covers at least a seven day period. The results of the counts are logged in a database, from which a Traffic Count Booklet is produced listing all the counts conducted since 1991. To obtain the detailed count report [sample] for any count listed in the booklet, contact Keith Wilson.
Staff is currentlypreparing the traffic count equipment for the start of the 2008 count season and scheduling the counts to be conducted.
Staff plans to update the traffic count booklet with data collected during the 2008 count season. This booklet will be available by April, 2009.
