Transportation Impact Assessment (TIA) Guidelines
Transportation Impact Assessments (TIA) may be requested in support of land development within the City of Edmonton to analyze and understand the traffic impacts of a proposed development. These guidelines have been developed to assist land owners, developers, and consultants in identifying situations where a TIA may be required, as well as the expected content, presentation, analysis methodology, and submission requirements.
The TIA Guidelines (2016) are divided into the following parts:
Part 1: Requirements for various levels of Transportation Impact Assessments
Part 2: Content/presentation requirements for various document sections
Part 3: Analysis requirements, standards, and methodology
The TIA Guidelines will be updated periodically. Users are encouraged to check here for the latest edition, as well as any known errors, omissions, or additional information planned for a future update. Addenda below should be incorporated into any ongoing traffic assessment, as appropriate.
September 2017 - Section 5.1 Active Modes
A future edition of the TIA Guidelines will expand on requirements related to this section. In the interim, assessments should include analysis and discussion of pedestrian safety at intersections and/or midblock locations. The latest edition of the Pedestrian Crossing Control Guide (TAC) should be referenced to determine any required pedestrian crossing controls, such as ground-mounted signage, overhead flashers and traffic signals at these locations.
