Traffic Impact Analysis






Traffic Impact Analysis is a vital part of the Transportation planning process.  It is used for current and future projects which:


  • Require changes in infrastructure
  • Modify existing traffic volumes
  • Result in changes to existing traffic patterns. 

The Traffic Impact Analysis:

  • Helps Transportation Planners and Engineers plan how development projects will affect traffic volumes
  • Assists in determining when new infrastructure is needed
  • Helps to identify existing and future vehicle capacity levels of streets and road sections
  • Is required for large development projects such as new subdivisions
