Traffic Impact Analysis Reports
Traffic Impact Analysis Reports
 
Traffic Impact Analysis (TIA) reports are prepared to ensure that new development projects comply with all applicable transportation policies and regulations. As part of the environmental review process, a TIA must be prepared in order to comply with the City of San José's transportation policy, any area development policy, and the Congestion Management Program. The TIA will identify the impact of the proposed development on the surrounding transportation network, as well as the specific development impacts and any required mitigation measures.

Typically, TIA's are prepared by a traffic consultant hired by the applicant. Division staff, working closely with the consultant, identify intersections to be studied and provide available existing and background information. Upon submittal of the completed traffic report and the traffic review fee to the city, staff will review the consultant's analysis to ensure compliance with the city's level-of-service (LOS) policy, any transportation policies unique to the area (i.e., Evergreen, North San José, Edenvale), and the Congestion Management Program. After review, the TIA becomes part of the environmental documentation necessary for project approval.
