New Traffic Impact Analysis Guidelines

The Office of the City Engineer's Traffic group has developed two guides to assist engineering design consultants in developing a traffic impact analysis (TIA).   

A design consultant should follow the TIA Scoping Meeting - Typical Meeting Agenda when scheduling a TIA scoping meeting. Meeting minutes provided by the design consultant should include all items in the agenda, along with any project specific details discussed during the scoping meeting.   

The TIA Content Guide and OCE Format Requirements follows the outline found in Chapter 15 of the Infrastructure Design Manual and provides formatting needed by the City to effectively review a TIA in a timely manner. Starting January 1, 2021, all newly submitted TIAs will be checked against this guide for completeness. A review will not begin until the TIA is administratively complete.
