The MPO Board approved the Local Roads Safety Plan at their meeting on May 14, 2021. The Plan was developed in a collaborative process involving 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.
