Pedestrians and Bicyclists Count, Phase 2: Implementing and Applying Multimodal Demand Data

Long-duration pedestrian and bicycle counts, which represent a variety of community contexts and facility types, are broadly understood to be a prerequisite to unlocking a wealth of analytic possibilities for better understanding active transportation demand, tracking Complete Streets policy implementation, and evaluating safety impacts. This study, which advanced preliminary feasibility research completed in LTRC 16-4SA, initiated the collection of permanent counts in four Louisiana communities; piloted and refined protocols for planning, installing, and validating permanent counters, and classifying factor groups; and advanced development of methods for applying count data to solve active transportation planning and safety problems for Louisiana roadways. In addition, this study advanced the extent and coordination of local and regional multimodal data collection in support of statewide Complete Streets policy implementation and performance measurement as directed by the legislature in Senate Concurrent Resolution 110 (2009) and RS: 48:22.1 (2014).
