Statewide Non-Motorized Traffic Monitoring Program
The Florida Department of Transportation’s (FDOT) Office of Transportation Data and Analytics, with the assistance of MARLIN, began the development of a Statewide Non-Motorized Traffic Monitoring Program in May 2018.
MARLIN will deploy staff all over the state to collect statistically valid bicycle and pedestrian traffic volume data so that statistics can be calculated and published annually. Through the leadership and program execution of our experts, MARLIN is leading FDOT into new territory that will help plan, design, build, and maintain pedestrian and bicycle facilities around the state of Florida.
From Vision to Reality
In June 2018, FDOT/MARLIN distributed a statewide survey requesting recommendations for non-motorized count locations. The survey response produced 406 locations to consider. In August/September of 2018, the FDOT/MARLIN team evaluated 55 proposed locations across the state and made recommendations for Continuous and Short-term count locations across FDOT’s 7 Districts.
