    Calculating highway commercial land requirements based on traffic volume

    Does anyone know how to calculate the land requirements for Highway Commercial land use based on existing and projected traffic volume? We are trying to determine the land that will be required for HC based on existing and future traffic volumes on the adjcent roadway.

    Any thoughts?

    In most cases, I would say that this would be a faulty way to calculate commercial need. Traffic volume is important to commercial uses, but other factors, such as trade area population and competition are far more important.

    Thanks for the response Cardinal. I agree. We were given a direction to go, but I think we need more information first.
