Development Traffic Impact Studies and Mitigation

TMZ Study

The City of Baltimore requires development of a certain size be reviewed by the Department of Transportation to determine if a traffic impact study and/or mitigation is required.  The purpose of traffic mitigation is to mitigate negative traffic impacts on the multimodal transportation network.

New Development, Additions, and Redevelopment over 10 dwelling units or 15,000 square feet of the building are required to be evaluated for Traffic Impact Study and Mitigation requirements. 

Developers have been required to email the TIS pre-scope document to the Department of Transportation, Traffic Impact Coordinator.  This document provides information about the proposed development for evaluation by the Traffic Impact Study Coordinator.

Developers are recommended to download the Rules and Regulations for Traffic Mitigation in the City of Baltimore.
