The first phase of our traffic counter update is now complete. The counter collected data in three locations – Wharf Hill, Propane Corner, and Indian Point. These were the same locations that were surveyed in 2014 and will provide us with the capability to complete a comparative analysis of vehicle usage over the last decade. The counter will be deployed again between September 22 and October 1st at the same locations. At that time we will return the counter to the City of Powell River to have results compiled and data certified.
The Traffic counter utilized a two cord system , separated by three feet. This allows speed to be measured as well. This was not the focus of the original study, but we will share the results. Thanks to Glen Moore and Steve Lackey for assisting in the project.
