In order to support the city’s Smart City program, this ongoing project will develop a permanent traffic count system at high volume locations within the city of Las Vegas to automatically collect traffic data. This will include determining the additional technology to use for collecting and storing data, selecting the technology to be used to communicate remotely with the count stations, acquiring and testing the system, and constructing count stations at select locations. Traffic signal controller data will be collected for key roadway links and at major signalized intersections. The increased, continual availability of traffic data will be used for a variety of purposes. It will improve traffic modeling capabilities within the Transportation Planning Section and the Traffic Field Operations Section to better analyze proposed intersection and roadway improvements by providing improved data for input into the computer models. Equipment procured will also support the city’s Connected and Autonomous Vehicle (CAV) initiative
