City officials will conduct a series of traffic counts this week to gather data for the Fayetteville Mobility Plan.

Traffic counting equipment will be temporarily installed on streetlights and sign poles at various locations around town, including Wedington Drive, College Avenue, School Avenue, Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard, Dickson Street, and Gregg Avenue.

The data collected will be used to refine recommendations along these corridors for transit, bicycle, pedestrian, and vehicle transportation networks.

The equipment includes specialized video cameras that record vehicle, bicycle and pedestrian movements.

The cameras are not able to record personal information such as license plates and cannot determine the identity of drivers, passengers or pedestrians, according to a news release.
