Mechanical count services include the collection of vehicle volume, speed and classification data through the use of portable traffic counters.
Turning movement counts are done by visually counting the vehicle passages 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 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.
