What is this box?

counter on trail

Perhaps you've noticed a mysterious grey box with a CT Trail Census decal that has been installed along your trail. The grey electrical junction box houses a Trafx infrared (IR) pedestrian counter that is recording the number of trail users passing it. The counter can sense the temperature differential between warm bodies and the ambient air temperature. Every time a trail user passes the counter, the counter records it, enabling project staff to gauge trail use.
