The latest data is being compared to a traffic flow study completed in 2018.
Typically, the intersection of St. Mary’s Road and Bishop Grandin Boulevard sees about 64,000 vehicles go through on a typical weekday.
With the current decrease, that means about 25,000 fewer vehicles are going through the area on an average day.
The city uses its network of traffic cameras and traffic counting stations to keep track of patterns and traffic flows on streets.
Fewer cars on the road also means fewer accidents. According to Manitoba Public Insurance, the month of March saw a 25 per cent decrease in the number of traffic collisions to just over 10,000 compared with 14,000 in 2019.
