ISSUES ON TRAFFIC IMPACT ASSESSMENT OF NEO-TRADITIONAL COMMUNITIES
This paper discusses two major issues, trip analysis and roadway design parameters, that emanated from the review of the site impact analysis for the proposed neo-traditional neighborhood development (NTND) in the Fredericksburg, Virginia area. Although NTND is emerging as an innovative transportation demand management strategy, it has not received widespread endorsement at the local level. This paper discusses how unavailability of adequate data, and standard design and analysis guidelines can inhibit support for NTND. Critical questions are raised that must be effectively addressed to encourage widespread local support for NTND.
