CDOT's evaluation of proposed developments includes consideration of the transportation network connectivity, circulation, operations, safety, multi-modal accommodation, compliance with adopted transportation plans and policies, compatibility with other projects, and access management. Traffic Impact Studies (TIS) are a tool used to evaluate a proposed development's impacts on the transportation system operations and safety. While typically used to evaluate rezoning petitions, a traffic impact study may be requested by CDOT to help evaluate by-right development as well.
