With the increasing urban road traffic pressure in closed residential areas, the problem of road patency in residential areas has become a hot topic. This paper established a traffic evaluation Model of the opening community based on VISSIM simulation. We constructed different types of residential areas, and compared the impact on traffic after opening different kinds of areas. With the analytic hierarchy process, we selected ten important indicators from three aspects. Then, the parameters of the road structure were put in the VISSIM simulation, and quantitatively analyze the impact of various types of residential areas opening. The results showed that changing the traffic rules at the intersection of the community has the greatest improvement in traffic capacity, reaching 89%. The influence of increasing the internal road and changing the external road structure of the city is more visible, reaching about 60%. The overall opening-up policy should be suitable for different localities.
