Today's sessions are sponsored by Traffic Impact Analysis (TIA) have been used for the past 40 years to assess the impacts of private development on our communities. ITE will be releasing an updated Guide for incorporating multimodal elements into the TIA process. There are many cities and states that have documented procedures on this topic. These procedures largely rely on the ITE Trip Generation Handbook which once had data focused mostly on suburban development. ITE professionals have worked diligently to address these limitations, but challenges remain. Issues such as the limited emphasis on safety and other multimodal that have been addressed in updated versions. This workshop will focus a bit on this document and look ahead to the future of using safety in TIAs to achieve our community’s objectives.

Learning Objectives:

  • Identify recommended changes that are part of the draft Multimodal Traffic Impact Analysis Recommended Practice. This will include changes to existing procedures, practices, and performance measures.
  • Document proven safety countermeasures used to address safety in communities.
  • Identify safety measures that could be incorporated in future editions of the document.
