Employment

TRAFFIC TECHNICIAN II

SPC works to plan and analyze our Region’s transportation system. One of the ways we accomplish this is by collecting data on how well transportation systems are working. The person we hire for this position will do the technical and manual work to collect this data.

Transportation planning and engineering studies need a large amount of data – how many cars drive down this street? How fast are they driving? Where are they going? This position, working with a team of planners and engineers, collects this data. Work includes collecting and recording traffic volumes and turning movements at highway intersections; conducting special traffic studies in the field, including video data-logging, collecting travel time data, and collecting pedestrian and bicycle volumes either manually or with counting equipment.  A high level of responsibility is expected in carrying out daily tasks and activities.  The anticipated hiring range is $30,000 - $35,000.

Responsibilities

  • Drive throughout the 10-county region installing traffic counting machines on area roadways.
  • Place automatic counting machines at designated sites, assure that the machines are operating accurately, and retrieve data from the machines.
  • Perform 6-hour manual classifications of vehicular traffic.
  • Carry out road inventories including the measurement of road mileage within a defined area.
  • Collect data for inventory of physical characteristics of highway systems. Survey and report physical and operational features of roadways and intersections for inclusion in technical reports, as required.
  • Conduct travel time surveys and other transportation surveys.
  • Collect and record traffic turning movements at highway intersections.
  • Maintain traffic counting equipment.
  • Follow established state and federal guidelines for working safely on roadways.

  • Have a reliable vehicle with current insurance.
  • Submit to DMV screening as well as a background check.
  • Ability to operate a motor vehicle in a responsible and safe manner.
  • Associates degree from a 2-year college, technical school, or equivalent.
  • Experience working in high traffic volume areas as a surveyor, a highway or construction worker, flag person or similar field work experience.

  • GIS/GPS Experience a Plus.
  • Ability to learn the techniques and operation of a variety of devices used in collecting comprehensive data for a wide variety of transportation planning surveys and studies.
  • Thorough knowledge and skill in interpretation of highway maps.
