Village Average Daily Traffic (ADT) Map

Village ADT Map coverVillage Average Daily Traffic (ADT) Map: The Village has compiled its own traffic counts, along with count done by other highway jurisdictions into the following map for your use. The Village is continually updating this information on our road network. You may see road tube counters out on the roads this summer. These are the counters that help to supplement our ADT database.

Traffic Studies

Basic traffic studies include speed, traffic volume, and parking counts. This data is usually collected for a specific purpose such as concerns regarding speeding traffic in neighborhoods, cut-through traffic, etc.

A frequent request from residents is install a stop sign to address concerns about traffic speeds. The Village follows the guidelines used by the State of Illinois in determining the need for stop signs. Studies have shown that stop signs that do not meet the established criteria for installation have a higher violation rate and also do not result in a reduction in speed.

Neighborhood SpeedWatch Program

The Village developed the Neighborhood SpeedWatch program in response to calls about speeding in neighborhoods. SpeedWatch is a cooperative effort between residents and Transportation Division staff to measure and record traffic speeds on residential streets. The Police Department sends a notice to the registered owner of vehicles observed to be speeding to encourage better compliance with the posted speed limit. Click here for link to brochure.

Another option is the Police Department’s Speed Trailer. The trailer uses a radar unit to measure a vehicle’s speed which is then displayed on an electronic sign on the trailer. Providing instantaneous feedback on travel speed is one way to educate motorists on their behavior with the goal of raising awareness and reducing speeds.

Traffic Operations

All requests for traffic controls, such as stop, yield, parking, speed signs, traffic signals are analyzed by the Transportation Division. The Village controls the operation of traffic signals on Beverly Road at the Northwest Tollway ramps. All other signals in the Village are regulated by either IDOT or Cook County. The Transportation Division coordinates studies with these and other agencies.

Highway Jurisdiction

Basic roadway maintenance and upkeep are the responsibility of each respective agency. This includes items such as snow plow, repairing potholes, road construction, traffic signs, traffic signal timing, etc. If you notice items you feel need attention on a roadway listed below, you may contact the Village and we can assist with relaying your concerns.
