Strategy 2

Statement

Safety

Description

Improving the safety and security of the regional transportation system is paramount to the M/RTP strategies. Almost all of the highest priority improvement projects and programs improve the safety of regional transportation customers and the transportation system. Improvements at freeway interchanges and arterial intersections are designed to reduce collisions. Roadway widening and reconstruction projects include design standards to reduce conflicts between travel modes. The M/RTP can also prioritize improvements that address and improve the regionís emergency preparedness. Enforcement and transportation safety education are identified in the M/RTP strategies
