Local Roadway Safety Plan
To qualify for future funding through future safety mitigation grants, the City must prepare a data-driven systemic safety analysis program through one of various options, including a Local Roadway Safety Plan (LRSP). In addition to funding qualification, the plan will also be used by the City to program future Capital Improvement projects and identify intended funding sources for those. The City has received funding for the preparation of its LRSP. Preparation requires data reviews analysis, public input, and the development of vision statements, goals, and identification of areas of emphasis. The intent is to have that process be conducted through the Traffic Safety Committee (TSC) through a series of partnership meetings, workshops, and public outreach. Once completed, the LRSP will be a living document that will be regularly updated with current data and the program will be continually reviewed and updated to reflect changing local needs and priorities.
An LRSP provides a framework for organizing stakeholders to identify, analyze, and prioritize roadway safety improvements on local roads. The process of developing an LRSP is tailored to local needs and issues. The City is creating a project stakeholder team including the Traffic Safety Committee members, Riverside County Sheriff’s Department, Riverside County Fire Department (CalFire), Jurupa Unified School District, ReachOut, and other interested parties.
The Traffic Safety Committee will be having a workshop and kick-off meeting at its October 22nd regular meeting. The kick-off meeting will be concentrating on development of the initial Vision Statement text and an overview of collision data to assist is establishing the initial emphasis areas for the plan. These will be refined at the following meetings to be held on the fourth Thursday of every month.
