Local Road Safety Plan

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

Project Overview

The City of Cupertino is developing a comprehensive Local Road Safety Plan (LRSP). The LRSP will enable the City to enhance traffic safety for all modes of transportation and for all ages and abilities.

The LRSP will be achieved through a decision-making process that relies on the evaluation of a comprehensive collision database, partnership with stakeholders, and public outreach using the four "E's of traffic safety: Engineering, Enforcement, Education, and Emergency Medical Services.

The development of the LRSP is funded by the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) and the California Department of Transportation (Caltrans), and is a requirement for City of Cupertino to be eligible to receive federal funding for local roadway safety improvement projects in the future.

The LRSP will identify safety patterns throughout the City. The LRSP will also result in a toolbox of countermeasure to address the safety patterns as well as proposed projects to improve safety at key locations. The plan will use data-driven collision analysis of local roadways to identify transportation safety improvement needs, including pedestrian, bicycle and vehicular safety improvements. Stakeholders and input from community members will also play a key role in the LRSP’s development process and implementation. Members of the public will have the opportunity to engage with City staff and offer feedback throughout the process.
