The Bannock Transportation Planning Organization (BTPO) has started a study to determine the current and future operating conditions of key un-signalized intersections within the City of Chubbuck, the City of Pocatello and Bannock County.
In 2020, BTPO began the process of updating the traffic impact study guidelines for the region. Traffic impact studies evaluate the impact of a specific development on a specific location. This type of analysis does not show the cumulative impact of all future developments over time.
The Un-signalized intersection study will analyze the cumulative impact of the region’s growth patterns on each of the 34 study intersections over the next twenty-five years. The study will determine which intersections do not meet service standards in 2045.
The study will provide local governments information they need to plan for improvements or identify alternatives to reduce the impact of growth on the study intersections.
During the data collection phase, the public will have the opportunity to identify safety and operations issues they observe at the intersections. From April 16 to May 21, 2021, the public can share their experience drive through the study intersections.
