What is a traffic study used for? 

A traffic study is not a feasibility study to determine whether a project can move forward or not. The purpose of the Traffic Impact Analysis (TIA) is to assist the city in identifying the effect of the proposed development on the city’s transportation system including capacity, level of services, and safety. The study may recommend certain improvements or mitigations to public right of way.
