The following guidance is given regarding how many surveys may be done in order to achieve the required sample size;

One survey result is required for the transportation modes survey in order to eliminate any repetition to achieve the required sample size as per table TRA-1.1 Sample Size Determination. 

If the survey does not achieve the minimum amount it may be redone or reissued as many times in order to achieve the required sample size within the performance period BUT the results cannot be combined to achieve the required sample size.
