The Flint Hills MPO received funding from the Kansas Department of Transportation (KDOT) in 2016 for the purchase of Bluetooth devices that will be used along US-24 in Pottawatomie County and Tuttle Creek Boulevard in Manhattan, to collect data regarding origins and destinations, travel speed, travel delay, and other traffic-related information. This data will then be used for an Origin and Destination Study associated with the Blue River Bridge.
After completing the Bluetooth Study, the data and methodology was forward to KDOT for their review. KDOT responded with a formal letter acknowledging the innovation of the technology, the cost-effectiveness of the project, and the validity of the data.
