In the upcoming months, the Delaware Valley Regional Planning Commission (DVRPC) will be collecting traffic count data on 6 roads throughout New Hanover Twp. These are the locations we will be counting:

Courtside Ave. between Centennial Ave. & Canyon Creek Rd.
Heather Ln. between Holly Dr. & Cherry St.
Kristen Ln. between Washington Dr. & Washington Dr.
Pa 73 Big Rd. between Pa 663 Layfield Rd. & New Hanover Square Rd.
Middle Creek Rd. between Swamp Pike & Peter Ln.
Romig Rd. between Romig Rd. & Barn Swallow Ln.

DVRPC routinely collects travel volume information in the nine counties comprising the Philadelphia metropolitan area. Counts are typically collected at the request of your state DOT to fulfill Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) program requirements, at the request of the county planning/engineering office, or in support of planning staff evaluating transportation system performance or improvements. This involves DVRPC staff laying a rubber tube across roadway facilities for approximately 48 hours (to gather daily traffic volumes), mounting video cameras, or manually recording traffic from a vehicle parked near an intersection (to gather turning movement information). These efforts will not interfere with normal traffic operations on these facilities.
