Grants and Contracts Details

Description

As commercial development expands, there is an increasing number oftraffic impact studies produced by consultants and submitted for review as part of the encroachment permit process. Major decisions are made as a result ofthese studies that impact traffic safety, mobility, and operations ofroadways in Kentucky. There are currently limited guidelines in place that specify the scope and basis of the studies. Benefits could be gained from the development of guidelines for the study requirements as well as the review process and verification oftraffic projections. An in-depth review and assessment of procedures for traffic projections on highway projects could validate and/or identify opportunities for improvement.
