traffic counting approaches may be allowed on a case-by-case basis.
For a list of intersections see the attached list. All approaches at the listed intersections should

more than 4 approaches, etc) that may require additional traffic counting efforts (i.e. personnel

additional efforts and costs to count. Previously collected 2017 traffic count data is available for
review on request, if needed.
Proposals should provide details on availability of video files collected to City of Pleasanton and
explain any additional costs associated.
Proposals should provide succinct explanation of video collection process, data processing, and
data delivery, specifically for this project (including products and any subcontractors used).
