In order to provide sufficient information to assess a development impact on the transportation system and level of traffic service, the city engineer may require a traffic study to be completed at the developer’s expense. This decision will be based upon the size of the development proposal, existing roadway condition, traffic volumes, accident history, expressed community concern, and other factors relating to transportation. (Ord. 98-64 § 1 (part), 1998).

12.07.020 Professional qualifications.

Traffic studies shall be conducted under the direction of a civil engineer or civil engineering firm licensed in the State of Washington and possessing special training and experience in traffic engineering and, preferably, with membership in the Institute of Transportation Engineers (ITE). (Ord. 98-64 § 1 (part), 1998).

12.07.030 Scope of study.

The level of detail and scope of the traffic study may vary with the size, complexity and location of the proposed development.
