Mobile Multimodal Counting Equipment

Tri-County is seeking Proposals/Bids from interested and qualified Vendors to fulfill TCRPC’s goals of purchasing mobile counting equipment. The primary reason for this equipment is to collect bicycle and pedestrian counts; the secondary reason is to acquire the necessary software/subscription for postprocessing the count data for analysis; and the tertiary reason is to count other forms of transportation along a roadway and intersection. Proposals should incorporate mobile counting equipment and be easily installed with a turn-key setup. A total of $50,000 has been programmed for this procurement opportunity.

Traffic Signal Asset Management Plan

Tri-County seeks to collaborate with a qualified firm to provide professional services to assist with the development of a locally controlled Traffic Signal Asset Management Plan (TSAMP). The TSAMP will include a GIS inventory of locally controlled signalized intersections with their corresponding attributes including pedestrian flashers, the extraction of timing plans from each signal box to collect AM and PM timings, and a final report that includes an overview of the process, findings, and recommendations. Additionally, the consultant will be tasked with importing the signal timing data into the Tri-County Activity-Based Travel Demand Model. A total of $430,000 has been programmed for this procurement opportunity.
