New traffic counter on the Cotton Belt Rail Trail

     While riding out to breakfast I noticed this newly installed bollard along the trail. It is located just east of Holiday Lane right before the curves. I haven't been able to find anything on the NRH website about it. It is a passive infrared and inductance loop combined counter. It will count the number of bicycles and pedestrians that move along the trail, logging the time and help the city make better decisions in regard to maintenance and future planning.
    Help us keep the count up and ride by this thing whenever you can. I have a suspicion that the more use that the trail sees then the more trails we will see.

  1. If it can indeed be of help to cyclists, then this is a pretty cool project. I do hope the data they gather from this can indeed give them insight for projects needed to help out bikers!
