A traffic study is an engineering investigation to evaluate a transportation system. The study is a means of identifying and documenting any deficiencies or improvements - both operational and physical - necessary to accommodate current or projected traffic volumes. Studies are a vital part of Peachtree City's ongoing effort to enhance the safety and performance of our streets.
A study typically consists of collecting data, projecting traffic volumes, and identifying the improvements required for the transportation system. Studies are performed on intersections and also non-intersection roadway segments to determine what improvements are warranted and how they might lead to a better road for motorists, cyclists, pedestrians, and other users. The need for traffic signals and speed zones is also determined by traffic studies, which have similar applications in the analysis of traffic management in work zones.
