In-Road Loop Assignments

These counts are conducted by connecting our ACE or TRS counters to induction loops imbedded in the roadway.  Most sites have one loop per lane where volume only can be collected.  There are sites with two loops per lane where the length and speed of vehicles can also be collected. Our counters are equipped to attach to the BC Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure PVC loop connection boxes.

2006                       Sun Peaks-Whitecroft

                On the President’s Day (US) long weekend we collected volume data at 2 locations on Heffley Louis Creek Rd. which accesses Sun Peaks Resort.  Traditionally this is one of the busiest weekends at the resort.  Our client was the Ministry of Transportation, Thompson Nicola District.




2006                      Hwy 97A, N of Pleasant Valley Rd., Spallumcheen, S of Armstrong

                Peak Traffic Technology Ltd. was requested by the Ministry of Transportation, Southern Interior Regional Office, to collect traffic data for the Pleasant Valley Road to Lansdowne Road Sub Project on Highway 97A at Armstrong. In addition to the three week 4 lane volume only loop count shown here we also conducted four, 7hr manual intersection movement counts and a three week one lane volume count, (collected as speed and vehicle classification by hose).



2007                       Coldwater Interchange

The BC Ministries of Tourism and Transportation needed vehicle volumes in the vicinity of the Visitor’s Centre adjacent to the Coldwater Interchange 6 km east of Merritt.  This interchange is at the junction of Highway 5 with Highways 5A and 97C.

PeaK Traffic Technology Ltd. was asked to conduct traffic data collection on the 2007 August long weekend and during the following two weeks.  Two different methods were used for the automated data collection.  One site was collected using road tubes to collect vehicle speed and class.  At the other 3 sites we connected to existing induction loops.  There was 1 loop per lane.


2008                       Hoffman’s Bluff 

In November 2007 PeaK Traffic Technology Ltd. was invited to join the project team for Functional and Detailed Design of the Hoffman’s Bluff project.  The project is on the Trans Canada Highway between Kamloops and Chase.  The traffic data was collected between July 5th and August 2nd 2008.

A 17 day two directional, two lane, volume only loop count, a three week, two directional, two lane, speed and vehicle classification hose count and four 7 hour intersection movement counts were conducted.



2010                       South Coast Region Short Count Traffic Data Collection Program

During the month of July we visited 31 sites on the BC Lower Mainland, Sunshine Coast and Vancouver Island collecting data from the functioning sites and reporting on the deficiencies at the remaining sites.





2012                       Hwys 97 & 26, Quesnel Area

For this data collection 4 Traffic ACE counters were set out in addition to 3 hose counts and 2 manual intersection counts.


2013                       Hwy 5A at Trapp Lake


At this location speed and vehicle length data was collected using one of our TRS counters.  Collecting speed and length using loop technology requires 2 loops per lane.   The purpose of this data collection was to assist in a study of truck traffic on Hwy 5A as compared to the Coquihalla.
