The Binghamton Metropolitan Transportation Study says it wants to explain some traffic counting it’s doing that could raise concern from residents if they aren’t aware of it.

The BMTS is working with a consultant to track the turning movement of traffic at select intersections and roadway segments.

People may notice tubes across the road and visible video technology for several days.

Transportation officials say they need to observe certain intersections and count vehicles and pedestrians using video technology installed where the intersection can be clearly observed.  The cameras and tubes across the roadways are generally in place for up to five days.

The BMTS says the majority of the counts will take place within the next month.
