A Local Road Safety Plan (LRSP) is a Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) proven safety countermea­sure that provides a framework for identifying, analyzing, and prioritizing roadway safety improve­ments on local roads.  Local road agencies should consider developing an LRSP to be used as a tool for reducing roadway fatalities, injuries, and crashes. LRSPs can help agencies create a prioritized list of improvements. They are also a proactive risk management technique to demonstrate an agency’s responsiveness.

Join us to learn the proper steps for developing and implementing a Local Road Safety Plan.

Who Should Attend

Approximately 75 percent of rural roads are owned by local agencies. While local roads are less traveled than State highways, they have a much higher rate of fatal and serious injury crashes.
Individuals responsible for roadway safety, whether a planner, an engineer, town management or someone who wants to learn about Local Road Safety Plans, should attend this workshop.
