A traffic plan review is an evaluation of pedestrian and vehicular circulation on development site plans and of traffic design parameters in roadway geometric plans. The review ensures that safe, efficient, and appropriate traffic accommodations are provided on public roads and publicly-used facilities during the development process.
A traffic review is required by the Planning Board for development that requires site-plan approval. This review is coordinated with the Department of Public Works and Transportation (DPWT).
Most commercial sites requiring a Driveway Permit or a Storm Drain and Paving Permit will require a traffic review.
The County Code (Sec. 59 E 4.1) requires a traffic review for all parking facilities plans.
The following items, as applicable, will be assessed:
The traffic review will automatically be conducted as part of any applicable permit review process (Driveway Permit, Paving Permit, Building Permit), or as part of the development-review process and is included in the time frames provided under individual permit descriptions.
There is no additional cost associated with the traffic review.
