Traffic Data Workshop Promotes Regional Dialogue

May 1, 2009

NEXTRANS researchers at The Ohio State University recently participated in the Midwest Traffic Monitoring Workshop on March 24-25, 2009. Executive Committee Member Mark McCord served as a member of the workshop planning team, and participated in a panel titled "Improving Availability and Use of Traffic Data in the Midwest." Dr. McCord is currently conducting a NEXTRANS-sponsored project that aims to improve the accuracy of Annual Average Daily Traffic (AADT) data by leveraging existing air photos.

Organized by the Transportation Research Board (TRB) and hosted by the Ohio Department of Transportation (ODOT), the Midwest Traffic Monitoring Workshop provided a forum for Midwestern state and local agencies to share successful strategies for collecting, analyzing, disseminating , and using traffic data. Participants also emphasized the importance of maximizing productivity and results through regional collaboration.
