Traffic Scoping Report Information
The traffic scoping report provides a preliminary review of the potential changes to the transportation system resulting
from the proposed development. The traffic scoping report allows Bernalillo County Public Works to identify reasonable
modifications that can be made to site plans that support the function of the transportation system and ensure safe and
efficient access to and from the site to the adjacent roadway. The traffic scoping report helps determine if the site’s
impact will meet thresholds requiring a Traffic Impact Assessment.
