Welcome to the Division of Engineering’s

Traffic Data Page

 

Have you ever noticed a black rubber hoses crossing a street in your neighborhood?  Maybe you haven’t seen, but heard the th-thump as your vehicle passes over the hoses.  There is a very good chance that these hoses are connected to a traffic counter installed by the Division of Engineering.

 The Division of Engineering collects and monitors traffic data on county roads and intersecting streets.  The data collected provides tangible information utilized by the Division for various project elements, some of which include:

·        Each year the Division of Engineering is required to develop a 5-year capital improvement plan.  Developing a fiscally responsible plan requires evaluating many projects.  Traffic data can be one of many factors that can be useful in prioritization of capital improvement projects.

·        Establishing minimum allowable design standards for road and bridge projects

·        Determining an optimal traffic signal timing sequence

·        Monitoring local trends

·        This information will play a large part in the determination and NJDOT authorization of speed zones.

·        Support information used in collaboration with other engineering data when applying for North Jersey Transportation Planning Authority (NJTPA) Local Lead and Local Scoping programs.  

Typical information collected includes:

  • Average Daily Traffic (ADT)
  • 85% Speed Data
  • Vehicle Classification
  • Turning Movements

This year the county will be updating information on the entire length of CR 611 (Springdale-Tranquility Rd, Wolf’s Corner Rd, Kennedy Rd.); CR 517 (Rudetown  Rd); CR 616 – CR 517 (Newton-Sparta Rd); and CR 565 (Lewisburg Creamery Rd). 

Traffic data is available by calling the Division of Engineering at 973-579-0430, or online by submitting a request under the “Service Requests” option found in the  Main Menu
