When we went through the zoning process, we were required to submit a traffic study of the kind you describe. It had to be produced and signed by a PE. It was a minor annoyance compared to all the other engineering work we had to submit. If I recall correctly, it was around $6K in 2014. There was no magic to it, but it wasn't something the zoning board would have accepted a generic substitution for. It had to be specific to the road we were proposing to end our driveway on. It was a one-time engagement of a traffic engineer, and none of us ever interacted with him. It wasn't a big deal.

The traffic study is helpful, however, for a different question that has been raised:  
the impact on traffic jams on Route One, a busy road already that people must use at 
times.  If there is a study, even an old one, that indicates a smaller traffic impact 
than a conventional development might produce, it’s one advantage we can point 
to if people ask.
