Countywide Local Roadway Safety Plan

Background

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!
