As I'm building my application (Python3) and working with the Traffic API, I find myself sort of 'guessing' at what the road information will be for a specific part of the road I want to monitor.
For example, say I want to only monitor is a single bridge like the one our town calls the 'Centennial' bridge which can be seen here: http://mapq.st/2iDUv7N
Within the JSON response, I'm checking the 'parameterizedDescription' field called 'roadName' for (and I'm guessing here): Centennial Brg
Then, to double-check myself I'm guessing at two other fields (fromLocation & toLocation) with Davenport in the from and Rock Island in the to.
That way if there is a backup on the bridge (car broke down, etc) I should be able to catch it in the feed, right?
So my question is: Are there any archived feeds that I can access or perhaps a better way to detect sections of roads or bridges rather than guessing at them?
Thank you for your time and consideration.
