Local Road Safety Plan Workshops Scheduled
A Local Road Safety Plan provides a data-driven, risk-based method to prioritize locations for engineering improvements to reduce fatal and serious injury crashes. This course introduces local agencies to the concept and structure of Local Road Safety Plans, and shows them how to build a plan based on actual crash data from a city.
This course also introduces WSDOT's 2020 City Safety Program, which will release a call for projects in November 2019. This federal Highway Safety Improvement Program-funded program will have a systemic subprogram for low cost, widespread, risk-based projects in an entire city, or over wide city areas. Agencies will need a local road safety plan in order to apply for any City Safety Program funding.
Several dates and locations to choose from: Oct. 1 (Olympia), Oct. 2 (Bellevue), Oct. 3 (Vancouver), Oct. 22 (Wenatchee), Oct. 23 (Spokane), Oct. 24 (Richland) No Cost. Details and registration.
