Traffic monitoring is a complex and difficult aspect of transportation management because it requires specific equipment, planning, and procedures. When done correctly, traffic monitoring will result in data, reports, and studies that will create a solid foundation for your project. When done wrong, you probably end up steering your clients in the wrong direction. There are numerous methods of monitoring traffic. The following is just a short list of different monitoring methodologies.
- Continuous data programs provide continuous data on different areas. Typically states run these kinds of monitoring programs, which means you will need to review existing monitoring to determine if you can omit similar ones for your project.
- Short term monitoring focuses on a specific problem, aspect, or area. It is likely that you will need to establish at least a couple of these for projects.
- Traffic patterns and speeds. You need to be aware of how much traffic flows through a certain area and the average speed. Determine what patterns are pertinent to your project before you create a monitoring plan.
