Traffic Counts for December 2008

The Table below includes, for each day, the raw traffic counts at Point 1 and Point 2, and the calculation of the daily Cold Spring Road trips attributable to Westmont College. Formula per Condition 9:

Westmont Daily Trips = [Point 1 count] minus [Point 2 count] minus [10 daily trips for each of the eight private residences between Points 1 and 2].

* - Although the Westmont campus resumed operations on 12/1/8--and normal traffic patterns likely resumed as well--all available capacity was needed for focused attention on the fire aftermath, and the traffic counts were not regularly maintained. No material detrimental traffic impact is believed to have ensued; but in any event, a) any variation in traffic patterns would be attributable to the fire; and b) even in the worst case it would not be plausible to conclude that the counts for those days could be so high as to cause our cumulative ADTs to exceed the defined limit/s.

The last two days of the month were not captured because Westmont staff were on extended holiday and unable to refresh the counter batteries. Because the holiday period is typically very low in traffic counts, the net effect of no counts on these days is to increase the overall average for All Other Days. Thus the neighbors, not the college, receive the "benefit of the doubt" for the missing data.
