Indiana 15 Regional Planning Commission conducts traffic counts in each of the six counties in our region. Commission staff works with the County Highway Departments and Engineers to determine the locations to track traffic counts.
The counters used by the Commission track volume, speed, axle classification and gap. The data can be viewed in table, graph or bar chart form. The data is uploaded to the Indiana Department of Transportation data base and can be searched at http://indot.ms2soft.com/tcds.
The staff at Indiana 15 Regional Planning Commission attends regular training to learn how to set up and operate traffic counters. As a result of the traffic count training, staff has been able to consistently obtain a high accuracy of the traffic counts conducted thus far in all six counties. These counts are actual numbers and not seasonally adjusted.
