The proposed traffic counts would inform the evaluation of potential construction and operations access routes that could be considered in alternatives for a proposed single tunnel Delta conveyance (requiring a separate CEQA process). The traffic counts include mid-block counts using pneumatic tube counters or mounted cameras (primarily to determine number of passenger cars, light trucks, medium trucks, and large trucks at a given location) and peak-hour turning movement counts using mounted cameras (all vehicles, bicycles, and pedestrian).
