WATER TREATMENT SUMMARY
Will the Country Resort add congestion to Route 50 from US17?
The resort will generate approximately 5% of the yearly traffic. The resort will also have a traffic flow pattern in the design on property so that all visitors enter and exit at different points of entry on the grounds.
The use is located on John S. Mosby Highway, Route 50 which is a rural principal arterial and Virginia Byway in the Comprehensive Plan. Currently three entrances serve the property – delivery, restaurant, and resort – all of which are located on Route 50. The applicant’s Statement of Justification contains a Traffic Assessment section. VDOT’s 2012 traffic counts for Route 50, from Route 17 in Paris to the Loudoun County line are 5,800 average annual daily trips (AADT). Using trip generations from the International Transportation Engineer’s (ITE) Trip Generation Manual, the applicant estimates the uses will generate 285 AADT. Thus, the uses contribute to approximately 5% of the yearly traffic on Route 50.
Event traffic is included in the annual figures above. Since event traffic is date specific, rather than distributed over a year’s time, it is helpful to consider times per year 96 additional trips are created by events should there be the maximum number of attendees requested. This would account for 1.7% of the traffic on John S. Mosby Highway (Route 50).
The majority of the traffic generated by the uses will be after 5:00 p.m. and on the weekends; therefore, it should not conflict with typical peak traffic associated with school buses and people going to and from work.
