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 Local Roads Safety Plan (LRSP) will identify transportation safety issues and provide a framework for reducing fatalities and serious injuries on highways and local public roads. The framework will be developed through:
- Data analysis
- Public outreach
- Collaboration and coalition building
- Development and adoption of recommendations
The data analysis component reviewed crash data from 2014 to 2018. The consultant, Tindale Oliver, presented initial findings of the Safety Data Analysis to the Collier Community Traffic Safety Team on May 28, 2020. The presentation may be viewed at this link: Statistical Analysis
The LRSP is scheduled for completion in September 2020. Stay tuned for periodic updates.
