Traffic Impact Studies

Overview

This four hour course focuses on the engineering requirements for a Traffic Impact Study. These requirements include: predesign activities; various types of traffic volume studies; traffic signal warrant analyses; condition diagrams; and traffic capacity analyses. This course will enable an engineer to follow the proper procedures in conducting various types of traffic studies as well as the need to present them to governmental agencies having jurisdiction for review and approval.

The course includes a detailed example of a Traffic Impact Study that demonstrates the relationship between the configuration of an intersection and how vehicles and pedestrians interact. This course will be especially helpful to Highway Engineers and Traffic Engineers, and others involved in site development and planning.

Participants taking this course will learn the importance of collecting sufficient data to properly complete a Traffic Impact Study.

At the conclusion of this course the student will:
  • Be able to conduct the required predesign activities.
  • Be able to conduct the required traffic volume studies for various types of analyses.
  • Understand the requirements for complying to the MUTCD Traffic Signal Warrants.
  • Have greater knowledge as to what is needed to prove that a traffic signal is warranted.
  • Be able to conduct Capacity Analyses to determine the Level Of Service during different scenarios.

The student must take a multiple-choice quiz consisting of twenty (20) questions at the end of the course to obtain PDH credits.

Specific Knowledge or Skill Attained

This course teaches the following specific knowledge and skills:
  • Predesign activities
  • Traffic studies:
    Automatic Traffic Counts; Turning Movement Counts; Pedestrian Counts; Accident Evaluation
  • Traffic Signal Warrants
  • Condition Diagrams:
    Number of Existing Lanes; Width of Lanes; Existing Street Furniture; Approach Slope, etc.
  • Capacity Analyses:
    Existing Conditions; Traffic Growth to the Design Year; Traffic Projection to Design Year - No Build Scenario; Site Generated Traffic; Traffic Projection to Design Year -Build Scenario

    State Board Acceptance

    This course can be used by professional engineers to fulfill PDH requirements mandated by state and provincial licensing boards. Decatur Professional Development is an approved provider of continuing education in all states that pre-approve course providers. In all other states that mandate continuing education for engineers, it is the individual engineer's responsibility to determine the suitability of activities for PDH credit. The state boards typically accept online* courses that cover technical, managerial** or ethical content and which are relevant to the practice of engineering. The course must have a clear purpose or objective with a content that will maintain, improve or expand the skills and knowledge of the licensee's field of practice. For questions about your mandatory PDH requirements, visit the website of your state licensing board.

    *Online courses are accepted by all state licensing boards that mandate continuing education. Other than New York (which limits online courses to 18 PDH) and Iowa (which limits online courses to 6 PDH), there are no limits placed by other states on the number of hours that can be earned through online continuing education. Consult with your state licensing board if you have any questions about the acceptability of online courses.

    *The New York State Board of Engineers does not accept general office management courses, but will accept project management courses that are offered by an approved provider and that are technical in nature and contribute to the engineer's professional practice.

Please Note: Continuing Education credits for this course are awarded as PDH (Professional Development Hour Credits).
