Description

The City of Austin (COA) collects vehicle volume counts on an ?as needed basis.? When a particular location needs a traffic study, COA adds these counts to the City of Austin Traffic Counts spreadsheet. COA does studies to install all-way stop and traffic signal controls, set speed limits, determine the need for school zones, and analyze traffic calming requests. The city does not collect any data on major highways within Austin. COA generally uses rubber tubes laid across roads that are attached to electronic traffic counters. Note: Traffic counts taken in June, July and August can be lower than average due to local school and University closures. C.O.A. contact: Jerry Carden @ (512) 974-5625 (Data Collection)
