Traffic Calming

The Town of Huntersville’s Neighborhood Traffic Calming Policy was developed to guide Town staff and inform residents about the processes and procedures for implementing traffic calming on residential streets.  Under this policy, the Town’s Engineering & Public Works Department will work with residents to identify traffic problems in their neighborhoods and seek appropriate solutions.  This Policy addresses local residential and neighborhood collector streets.

Citizen participation is an important part of all traffic calming projects.  Experience in other cities has shown that traffic calming projects that are implemented without involving the neighborhood are frequently unsuccessful, often resulting in the future removal of traffic calming measures.  The Town’s goal is to give the people who live and work in the project area the opportunity to become actively involved in the planning and decision-making process.

Traffic Impact Analysis/Study
 

A Traffic Impact Analysis or Traffic Impact Study (TIA) is an analysis of existing or projected future conditions to assess the conditions of the roadway network.  Typically a TIA is used as a planning tool to evaluate the impacts of a proposed development on the surrounding roadway network.  Based on the evaluation results, roadway improvements may be needed to mitigate the additional traffic demands.

Currently, the Town requires a TIA for new or redevelopments that generate 50 or more peak hour trips or 500 or more daily trips.  The Town may also require a TIA to obtain a Town Driveway Permit.

For information on TIA study requirements, processes and procedures, see chapter 14 of the Town Zoning Ordinance and the TIA Process and Procedures Manual.
