Lane Departure & Intersection Safety

Pursue on a priority basis, projects identified in the Highway Safety Improvement Program (including High-Risk Rural Roads projects, as defined in current guidelines) for locations with known histories and incidents of crashes

Status: Substantial Progress

Install milled rumble strips, or appropriate alternative, at center-line and roadway shoulders to alert in-attentive and drowsy drivers that are straying into opposing traffic lanes or off the road

Status: Substantial Progress

Reduce the possibility of hitting an object or overturning by installing high-friction surface treatments (HFST); designing safer slopes and ditches; removing or relocating objects in critical locations; and installing and/or upgrading safety hardware.

Status: Substantial Progress

Install signs that make it easier for older drivers to see and respond (e.g. retroreflective sheeting, new font styles, etc.)

Status: Substantial Progress

Install delineators and warning signs where the roadway alignment is confusing or unexpected

Status: Substantial Progress

6Install medians and other physical barriers to reduce head-on or crossover collisions

Status: Substantial Progress

Continue to improve work zone safety, and accessibility through work zones, for all road users, through public education, effective traffic control, improved safety hardware, and off-peak construction

Status: Substantial Progress

Develop and implement programs for the timely repair and maintenance of safety hardware, light poles, pavement markings, and signs.

Status: On-going

Incorporate designs that reduce conflicts such as synchronized traffic signals, traffic calming, separate left turn signals, one-way streets, and turn pockets

Status: On-going

Conduct Road Safety Audits or Assessments on roadway projects to identify additional safety improvements

Status: On-going

Develop a coordinated transportation master plan that emphasizes safety, accommodates all users, and ensures adequate rights-of-way to support future growth

Status: Early Progress

Consult with police and other road users during project development and design safe locations to enforce traffic laws

Status: Early Progress

Develop a process to quickly resolve jurisdictional issues, as safety improvements cannot be undertaken where the road ownership is in limbo

Status: Early Progress

Develop a streamlined process to accelerate delivery of local road projects

Status: Not Started

Adopt rights-of-way maintenance and management policies that maintain clear zones as designed

Status: Not Started

Implement State and County Complete Streets policies, with an emphasis on reducing speeds, promoting alternative modes of transport, and improving driver behavior

Status: On-going

Implement more low-cost safety countermeasures such as: Rectangular Rapid Flashing Beacon (RRFB), SafetyEdge, high-friction surface treatments, backplates with retroreflective borders, pedestrian countdown timers, etc.

Status: On-going
