Alabama Traffic Data Collection Analysis

The objective of this project is to administer a component of the Highway Performance Monitoring System (HPMS) on behalf of the Alabama Department of Transportation (ALDOT). Timely and accurate implementation of the HPMS is essential to the functioning of ALDOT. Traffic data (volumes and vehicle classification counts) collected under the HPMS are used to determine the level of federal highway funding ALDOT receives each year. ALDOT is required to provide annual reports of traffic volumes and sampled vehicle classification counts on its roadway system. The reports are typically generated on a county-by-county basis. The University of Alabama (UA) will engage traffic data specialists, Southern Traffic Services (STS), to implement the 2012-2013 HPMS counts in Houston County, Alabama.
