Traffic Operational Analyses (TOA)

  • A TOA will be required for all development projects that are expected to generate 200 or more vehicle trips per day and for which a Traffic Impact Study (TIS) was not completed.

  • A TOA will be required for any development project for which changes in land use are intended after the completion of a TIS or TOA, if enough additional vehicle trips are being generated beyond those accounted for in the TIS or TOA, as determined by the County Coordinator.

What is Virginia trying to reduce/remove?

  • traffic congestion
  • dangerous streets & intersections
  • new construction
  • widening projects

Takeaway #1

  • Not all arterials are created equal
    • Long distance trips with few access points
    • Local traffic with many access points
  • Design speed must be appropriate for the context
  • Road should change with the land use

Takeaway #2

Parting Observations
