A neighbor emails this afternoon:
Do you guys have any information about the traffic camera (see attached photos) newly mounted today at the intersection of 15th Avenue Northeast and Northeast 98th Street?
It’s from a company called “All Traffic Data,” and it’s mounted onto a normal traffic sign, but extends up about 20 feet with a camera that looks like it’s pointed directly into the middle of the intersection. Is that for enforcement, or are they studying something—maybe considering a light or something?
We don’t have any information about that specific installation (but will try and get some).
All Traffic Data is a company that works in several states, including Washington, providing:
Average Daily Traffic Counts (Volume, Speed & Classification)
Turning Movement Counts (Volume & Classification)
Origin-Destination Studies (Video or Manual)
Radar Speed Studies
Gap and Delay Studies
Travel Time Delay Studies
Road Condition Inventories
Saturation Flow Studies
Parking Lot Studies
And Northeast 98th Street is the main connector crossing Lake City Way in that area.
