Greensburg Vehicle and Pedestrian Study: South Main Street between West Otterman and Pittsburgh Street

The Intelligent Mobility Meter (IMM) is a portable data acquisition and analysis platform for the collection of fine-grained statistics on pedestrian, cyclist and vehicular traffic. This study used the IMM to provide real-world, valuable, traffic data and actionable information to local government entities. This study focuses on the deployment of the IMM in the City of Greensburg to evaluate traffic conditions in front of the courthouse and municipal services complex. In particular focus was placed on a mid-block pedestrian crossing that has been identified as potentially dangerous, as well as the possibility of jaywalking in the area. This study describes the data found and provides recommendations on possible road improvements for increased pedestrian safety. The authors performed pedestrian and vehicle counts at the crosswalk on South Main Street between West Otterman and Pittsburgh Street on the days of November 13th, 14th, and 15th of 2018. From their analysis of these counts, they give several possible recommendations to improve the safety of the crossing at the study area, depending on acceptable cost/benefit ratios and budget.
