Countywide Local Roadway Safety Plan


What is a Local Roadway Safety Plan (LRSP)?

A Local Roadway Safety Plan (LRSP) provides a framework for analyzing, identifying, and prioritizing roadway safety improvements to reduce severe injury and fatal collisions on local roadways. The LRSP supports a holistic approach to addressing road safety for all road users and also contributes to the California Strategic Highway Safety Plan (SHSP), which aims to reduce traffic fatalities and serious injuries across the State’s roadways.

Why is an LRSP important?

Development of a LRSP will help San Mateo County get funding to build roadway improvements that will positively impact everyone residing in and traveling through San Mateo County, especially the most vulnerable communities.

Project Details

C/CAG is developing a Countywide Local Roadway Safety Plan to improve motorist, bicyclist and pedestrian safety on local streets and roads throughout San Mateo County. Every year, people are killed or seriously injured due to speeding, running red lights, and other factors that put other motorists, bicyclists, and pedestrians at risk. Please get involved to help improve street and road safety in your community! Check this project page often to learn about upcoming public meetings, pop-up events in your community and other ways to get involved in the Countywide Local Roadway Safety Plan development.

Draft Countywide Local Road Safety Plan

After hearing robust input from the community and using data collected on traffic patterns and incidents, C/CAG has developed the draft Countywide Local Road Safety Plan. Read the draft plan here: Local Roadway Safety Plan


Get Involved

The draft Countywide Local Roadway Safety Plan is available for public review and comment until April 26, 2024. Community input, including comments and questions, are welcomed at

Thank you for your participation in Phases I and II outreach! We appreciate the opportunity to share the project with you and receive your valuable feedback. During these phases of outreach, we heard from local communities on the specific locations and road safety priorities that concerned them, solicited input on priority locations for safety improvements, and collected feedback on potential countermeasures to reduce fatalities and serious injuries.


The project team will be presenting the public draft plan at the following meetings:

Final maps may be different than draft versions. Please note some jurisdictions (10 out of 21) already have an existing or concurrently developing their own safety plan and do not have identified locations as part of this work.
