Incoming Traffic Count
The following data is provided within the update from the CAO at the monthly Committee of the Whole - Planning, Committee of the Whole - General, and Council meetings.
Traffic counts are being conducted by the Town of Niagara-on-the-Lake's Operations Department, using a low power radar technology sensor that is able to gather multi-lane bidirectional traffic data. Traffic is being counted at the intersection of Mississauga Street and William Street and on Queen's Parade approaching the entrance to Fort George.
In July of 2020, Town Staff determined it would be helpful to capture metrics on the number of vehicles entering the Old Town area during the course of the pandemic and how it compared at times when the Province had also issued emergency Stay-at-Home Orders.
In the post-pandemic future, this data will be helpful as a comparison to the volume of traffic received. This information will also be beneficial in the future planning of road related projects and development in the area.
