Local Roadway Safety Plan (LRSP)
The City of Morro Bay, California, is developing a Local Roadway Safety Plan (LRSP) that will identify areas for roadway and safety improvements on local roads. The City has received grant funding from Caltrans to conduct this plan, which will develop potential safety improvement projects for pedestrians, bicyclists, and motorists and in turn, make the City eligible for future state roadway safety funding!
As part of the LRSP development, the City plans to:
- Identify high-risk crash areas with community input
- Analyze crash data, maintenance logs, and safety audits to develop a locally focused safety plan
- Proactively improve safety along local roads by proposing a list of prioritized safety projects
- Provide an implementation timeline for the prioritized list of improvement projects
- Host events for communities to provide input and ask questions with the project team present
What is an LRSP?
A LRSP is a data-driven technical analysis that strives to understand the existing trends, factors, and causes of collisions within a community. Based on this analysis, the LRSP creates a framework to recommend and prioritize safety improvements on a citywide level for future planning and development efforts towards a safer community for pedestrians, bicyclists, and motorists.
