NACE/FHWA Hands-On Local road safety plan workshop
The pilot program is a partnership with the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) and the National Association of County Engineers (NACE) through the Every Day Counts (EDC4) Data Driven Safety Analysis initiative. It will provide a unique opportunity for your agency and partners in your state to participate in a blended learning program including webinars and a “hands-on” workshop and roadway safety training in Savannah, GA December 4-5, 2018.
Local Road Safety Plan development has been a strategic priority for NACE and FHWA in recent years and is an FHWA Proven Safety Countermeasure. Development and implementation of LRSPs have been proven to reduce fatalities on local roads in states that have implemented them. The goal is for each local agency participating to have a draft LRSP at the completion of the pilot. This will be accomplished through a series of training webinars, a face-to-face workshop and safety training, data analysis support, technical assistance (from the state, federal and LTAP partners), and a resource website.
Some objectives of the pilot program include:
• Progress towards national and state goals of reducing fatal and injury crashes;
• Foster local, state, federal agency partnerships to advance local road safety;
• Compliment current LRSP efforts by FHWA, States, Tribes and Locals;
• Accelerate development and implementation of LRSPs;
• Advance Risk Based, Data Driven and Systemic Approach to Improve Safety on Local Roadways;
• Empower locals to incorporate safety into routine business (e.g. maintenance, capital improvements); and,
• Leverage local, state and federal funding opportunities.
