Traffic Safety

The MPO is developing a Local Roads Safety Plan with input from a broad range of stakeholders including the MPO’s advisory committees, FDOT’s Community Traffic Safety Team (CTST), local law enforcement agencies, FDOT, and other state and federal planning partners. The purpose is to prioritize opportunities to improve roadway safety on locally owned and maintained roadways in support of FDOT’s Vision Zero goal of achieving zero fatalities and serious injuries Statewide. The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) 2016 SHSP is a critical point of reference for the LRSP. See:

The Draft Local Roads Safety Plan (LRSP) identifies transportation safety issues and provides a framework for reducing fatalities and serious injuries on highways and local public roads. The framework was developed through:

  • Data analysis (2014-2018)
  • Public outreach
  • Collaboration and coalition building
  • Development and adoption of recommendations

The consultant, Tindale Oliver, presented the draft LRSP to the MPO Board on December 11, 2020. The presentation may be viewed at this link: LRSP Board Presentation 12-11-20 (002)

The MPO’s advisory committees will review the Draft LRSP in January and February, 2021; followed by the Board in March or April 2021. Stay tuned for periodic updates.
