Traffic Impact Assessment for Technical Evaluators

Rationale

Urban and regional development projects, such as malls, housing, schools and commercial establishments, have already been established to have remarkable impacts on the transportation system and its environment.  It is necessary to evaluate the significance of traffic-related impacts before the implementation of a proposed development.  The TIA process allows these future impacts to be planned for and mitigated.  TIA is now being required by some local governments and national agencies for some developments before its approval.  This training will give an overview of the TIA process and discuss the contents of a TIA report.

Target Participants

City/Municipal planner, City/Municipal engineer, traffic engineer, transportation planner, local and national government personnel involved in transportation and related functions and TIA would-be evaluators.
