Volunteers needed to collect traffic data at Farm Progress Show

Posted:

Decatur - Calling all Android smartphone users -- here is your chance to earn a little easy cash, and help out during this year's Farm Progress Show.

 

Macon County Highway Department is partnering with the University of Illinois Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering, IDOT, Farm Progress, and Richland Community College to do a comprehensive traffic study during the morning hours the first 2 days of the show. We will be using a cutting-edge technology called the Traffic Turk and all you have to do is use an easy app on your phone to count cars at designated intersections.

 

Hours would be from 7 to 10 AM each day and each day is worth $50. There will be a short training session the week before the show. The results will be evaluated with an eye towards making the traffic flow smoothly and safely into the show. If you would like to know more just follow the link below.

 

There is a signup link on the Traffic Turk website:  http://trafficturk.com/fps2013register
