Regional Safety Planning
In 2015 and 2016 coalition partners came together to develop Transportation Safety Action Plans serving Lane County. To date, the Metropolitan Policy Committee has adopted a safety plan for the metro area. A rural plan will be considered by the Board of County Commissioners in July.
Oregon has long been a leader in transportation safety through the Oregon Department of Transportation (ODOT) Transportation Safety Division. ODOT has developed a statewide Transportation Safety Action Plan (TSAP). The Oregon (TSAP) establishes a set of actions that Oregonians have identified as steps to a safer travel environment.
Building on the success and partnerships of this planning process, the MPO and Lane County with support from ODOT are launching a safety program in Lane County. This program will focus on reducing fatal and severe crashes in our region through education, outreach, and enforcement efforts.
