Traffic Impact Study

Traffic Impact Study (PDF)

The functionality of the existing roadway systems are influenced by many factors including: current use; land use bordering the facility; type and amount of access to the facility; and traffic control used along the facility. New developments or redevelopments can often change the existing conditions of a roadway requiring agencies and local property owners to make improvements to regain reasonable levels of service. To assist the cities of Pocatello and Chubbuck and Bannock County, Bannock Transportation Planning Organization (BTPO) developed the Traffic Impact Study (TIS) Developer Guidelines. The primary purposes of these guidelines are (a) to assist in the short and long range planning of site access, off-site improvements, and street systems; (b) assist developers and property owners in making critical land use site planning decisions regarding traffic.
