With the recent start of tolling on SR-520 here in Seattle, the public’s attention is suddenly on traffic volumes on 520 and I-90. So, this morning, I went over to the WSDOT website to see if I could find a simple listing of traffic volumes for the past few weeks. Nothing, just a few random numbers sprinkled in their press releases.
Obviously, WSDOT is collecting this data. It’s ridiculous that it’s not being published in formats that would make it easy to read and analyze. What a huge open government data fail.
