New bicycle counts available!

We conduct bicycle and pedestrian counts twice a year. We just did the latest counts on September 27th. It was a beautiful day and counts were high. We set a record high at James Agee/Cumberland, and other counts were on par with our highest count day, back in October 2008. We were much higher than the past two years. The full record of our counts can be found at http://archive.knoxmpc.org/locldata/TrafCnts/bike_ped.pdf
