Caltrans Conducts Traffic Counts Surveys On Interstate 5 and 15

SAN DIEGO – Caltrans will be conducting traffic surveys at Interstate 5 at Del Mar Heights Road and various locations along Interstate 15, from April 8 – May 21. The counts will take place during the morning and afternoon commute periods.

Motorists may see personnel in vests and hard hats sitting or standing on freeway overpasses while manually counting vehicles on electronic count boards. Workers will be collecting data that include numbers and types of vehicles as well as occupancy of these vehicles.

This data will be used to determine current traffic volumes and potential growth used for future planning.

Motorists are reminded to drive alertly and not to be distracted by the traffic count teams alongside the freeways.
