Section 12: Traffic Data for Special Projects
TPP collects traffic data for special projects when traffic information at a specific location is not available or not current. Such projects may include rail crossing studies, bridge crossing studies, and site impact studies. The type of data collected depends on the type of project.
TxDOT districts request special traffic data using standard forms sent to Traffic Analysis Section of TPP. The requests are then forwarded with a map to Tech Services in TPP to be included as part of regularly scheduled counts. When special traffic data requests cannot be scheduled to coincide with regular count travel, the TxDOT district requesting the count will be required to reimburse TPP for travel and per diem costs.
