Article 14.3 - Impact Area

The impact study area designates the intersections for a TIA study where potential increases in traffic from the development may cause degradation of levels of service.  Where traffic from the proposed development is anticipated to increase a signalized or major unsignalized intersection single approach by 40 vehicles in a peak hour or increase the total of all approaches by 70 vehicles in a peak hour, the intersection shall be studied in the TIA.  Should an intersection be considered at its ultimate buildout laneage or configuration or within the delivery portion of the current NCDOT State Transportation Investment Program (STIP) prior to final action taken by the Town Board or permit issuing authority, the Town Engineer may waive the requirement to include the intersection for study in the TIA.
