From Ashley Lickliter at Kimley-Horn:

Please find attached (IdlewoodAve_DataComparison) the additional traffic data collected for the Idlewood Roundabout project from Saturday, April 26, 2014 through Tuesday, April 29, 2014.  This traffic data was collected while VCU was in session and Wicked was at the Altria Theater including two shows on Saturday, two shows on Sunday, and one show on Tuesday.
Traffic volumes for Tuesday, April 29th from 5:00 – 6:00 PM were appropriately 18% higher in comparison to the volume data collected on Tuesday, January 28, 2014 (the data utilized for the traffic analysis).  This increase would be attributable to the show and could be expected for similar events.  All other peak hours show negligible increases or in some instances decreases in traffic volumes.   Additionally all weekend data showed lower volumes than either weekday AM and PM peak traffic volumes.
An 18% increase in traffic volumes during the PM peak would not be enough to changes the results or recommendations of the traffic operational analysis.  Additionally you may recall that the AM peak is actually busier than the PM peak for this study area.
Please let us know if you have any questions or concerns.  We would be happy to discuss further at your convenience.
