Traffic & Parking Impact Studies
Crain & Associates is often called upon to assess the traffic impact of a project on area intersections and surrounding roadway networks. At first, we evaluate existing conditions to establish area traffic-related characteristics. Potential project traffic impact and area growth are then added to the existing conditions base to determine area deficiencies and opportunities for transportation improvements. The analyses follow City, County, or Caltrans guidelines and utilize the latest national or regional trip generation techniques. The result is a document with a defined improvement program to offset potential impacts to the area roadway system. Through innovative and comprehensive design, we develop mitigation packages that improve traffic operations in a project area. We prepare traffic impact analyses for all types of land uses ranging from industrial projects to single family residential tracts; from large office complexes to shopping centers; and from healthcare facilities to residential mixed-use projects.
