A Guideline for Determining Minimum Threshold Requiring Traffic Impact Studies
Over the years, a number of localities have developed and adopted some form of traffic impact assessment (TIA) guidelines. As part of this study, an informal survey conducted showed that...

The Foundation for a Successful Traffic Impact Analysis
Both governmental agencies and private developers use the information developed in a traffic impact analysis (TIA).Traffic Impact Studies can be an important tool in efforts to maintain...

Analyzing Fast-Food Drive-Up Window Site Impacts
Peak-period queueing at a fast-food restaurant drive-up window was observed. The study found that queueing behavior equations based on random arrivals and service times overestimated the...

Comparison of Delay and ICU Analyses—Case Study
Traffic Management Initiative was a petition-based referendum that sought to limit traffic impacts of proposed or planned development through the use of more stringent transportation planning...

ICU—A Method of Analyzing Signalized Intersections
There is a need for decision makers, developers and the public to understand the potential traffic impacts of site development. Signalized intersection operations are a primary indicator...

Trends in Published ITE Trip Generation Rates
Since 1976...

Trip Generation Rates, a Historical Look
This paper compares the 1990 weighted average trip generation rates of military bases, shopping malls, universities, airports, and hospitals for San Antonio-Bexar County and Amarillo,...

Estimation of Pass-By Trips Using a License Plate Survey
The objective of the study was to determine whether it is possible to estimate the percentage of pass-by trips using a license plate survey instead of the traditional interview survey....

Improvements on Quantifying Pass-By Trips for Shopping Centers
Improvements to the procedures for quantifying pass-by trips (T), handling imbalanced traffic volume conditions, and collecting field pass-by trip data are suggested. A simpler model which...

Hotel-Casino Trip Generation Analysis Using GIS
Trip rates and models for developments such as resorts and major hotels are commonly based on a single explanatory factor or an activity unit such as floor area, number of employees, number...

The Isolated Signalized Intersection as a Mitigation on a High-Speed Highway
A concentrated 'leap-frog' type development is commonly proposed as it offers the opportunity to organize an extensive living-recreation orientated site with low to modest land costs....

Access Management — Myth or Reality
The concept of access management has emerged over the past decade as a means of preserving the functional integrity of the arterial road system while simultaneously providing access to...

Commuter Infiltration, The Unaddressed Issue
Traffic Impact Reports usually assign project-related traffic only to the adjacent collector and arterial highways. Usually the reports do not attempt to address possible commuter infiltration...

Access Control to Projects Via Raised Islands
When addressing driveway maneuvers at a new development, alleged ailments Must be quantified before drafting a cure. If a problem is anticipated, alternative solutions should be investigated,...

Site Impact Analysis Using the Tranplan Computer Model
As the cost of infrastructure improvements continue to spiral upward local and state governments are finding it more difficult to provide for increases in traffic volumes due to growth...

Traffic Impact Study for a Regional Shopping Center at a Basque City. A European View
A 45,000 m2 GLA Regional Shopping Center has been designed in close proximity to a thruway diamond interchange. Peak-hour generation was estimated and detailed analyses were performed...

Network Model Analysis of Traffic Patterns Resulting from a Proposed Regional Mall
A comparison was made between two methods of traffic impact analysis of a proposed regional shopping mall in Keene, New Hampshire. One study was prepared for the developer using conventional...
