Planning in Progress
The Maryland Department of Transportation (MDOT) is examining ways pedestrian and bicycle traffic data are collected across the state – currently done in a variety of methods and used to evaluate project effectiveness, variations in overall volumes, and crash data analyses.
To understand the various practices and uses, MDOT has created an online survey to learn how bicycle and pedestrian traffic data are collected, used, and stored and looks at reasons why data may not be collected. The survey is open to all, with a focus on transportation planners, traffic engineers, and other practitioners.
Results from the survey will assist MDOT in determining how to implement an active transportation traffic database. If you have any questions about this survey or its results, please contact Nate Evans, Active Transportation Planner in MDOT’s Office of Planning and Capital Programming at firstname.lastname@example.org.
