Traffic Impact Studies
Our team of traffic engineers has worked on traffic impact studies for over 20 years throughout Utah, primarily across the Wasatch Front. In the last two years, FOCUS has performed over 50 traffic impact studies in areas ranging from multi-phase master planned communities to single-lot commercial developments. The large master planned communities like Rosecrest East in Herriman, The Gathering at Creek Ridge in Herriman, Overland in Eagle Mountain, and Mountain Ridge in Herriman and Riverton, consist of thousands of single-family units mixed with multi-family and commercial lots all within the same development. On these studies, we coordinated closely with the reviewing agency, which in most cases was the city where the developments are located, and UDOT. The traffic impact studies were generated to meet the requirements of each individual city and UDOT. Coordination from the beginning of each project was held to make sure the future needs of the city were met, along with the necessary improvements from the specific development. We use the latest software and manuals to provide the necessary trip generation volumes as well as data for level-of-service analysis. We collect our own data when necessary and also use available data from UDOT and other surrounding resources to provide accurate traffic counts.
