Traffic impact refers to the effect a certain type or magnitude of development will have on the surrounding transportation system. A Traffic Impact Study (TIS) provides a way of assessing the adequacy of the existing or future transportation system to accommodate additional traffic generated by a proposed development, redevelopment or land rezoning. It will also assist in determining what improvements will be required to the roadway system in order to maintain a satisfactory level of service.
A traffic impact study will be required to support a development or redevelopment proposal under the following situations:
The proponent should contact the Engineering Department early in the planning process to apprise the Department of the proposed plans and obtain a determination on whether a TIS will be required and the specific parameters.
A Traffic Impact Study will indicate the effects of a proposed development on an existing or future roadway system. It is also the intent of the TIS to recommend necessary geometric or operational improvements to the roadways in order to satisfactorily accommodate additional traffic at a reasonable level of service, consistent with the City’s level of service guidelines.
A traffic impact analysis shall constitute an essential part of the development review process. Specifically, a TIS will address the following:
A Traffic Impact Study shall be prepared under the supervision of a qualified and experienced transportation engineer, licensed in the Province of Manitoba. The exact parameters for a TIS required for a specific proposal will follow the guidelines identified in Appendix D.1 of the Brandon Area Road Network Development Plan, and any additional specific features as set out by the Engineering Department for the City of Brandon.
It is the responsibility of the proponent (developer and/or owner or the owner’s designated agent) to have a TIS prepared by a qualified and experienced transportation engineer licensed in the Province of Manitoba. Following completion of the report, the TIS shall be submitted to the Traffic Section of the Engineering Department for review as well as the Planning Department in conjunction with the development application.
Three copies of the final report, sealed by a Professional Engineer registered in the Province of Manitoba, as well as a PDF digital copy must be submitted.
The City’s role will be to:
All costs associated with the preparation of a TIS shall be borne by the applicant.
