Armadillo Speed Sensor
KBRPC now has an Armadillo Speed Sensor to conduct traffic counts for the region. Many MoDOT traffic studies and permits require a speed study. The traditional method has been to nail down a device on the roadway surface to collect that data. That process took time and put individuals in the middle of the road. The Armadillo Speed Sensor is an innovative way to deploy a speed study from the side of the road out of the lane of traffic. The device can be attached to a sign post or on a tripod and the unit registers all lanes at one time and provides data for each lane including the type of vehicles and their speed. Due to an 11-day battery life, the data can be gathered for a longer period of time. The speed study data is sent via email to a traffic studies specialist in an easy-to-use spreadsheet. Once the data is received, the senor can be moved to a new location. The Armadillo has been used a few times throughout the region and has provided valuable information to the community. If you are interested in utilizing this device, please contact us at (660) 885-3393 to make an appointment or for more information.
Any entity that has received funds from USDA, has to put together a Limited English Proficiency Plan. Don’t fret, KBRPC has done that for you. Well, most of it anyway. You can use our plan as a format for yours. Our plan is based on the entire KBRPC region. All you have to do is fill in your community’s information where applicable. If you have any questions about this process, please contact us at (660) 885-3393.
NEPA (National Environmental Policy Act) Reviews
Many state and federal agencies require a NEPA Review for awarded projects such as CDBG, USDA, and MODNR. NEPA (National Environmental Policy Act) is designed to make sure that Federally funded projects are environmentally sound. KBRPC can conduct these reviews for you. These assessments take time and attention-let us help!
