About the Safety Circuit Rider Program

The Safety Circuit Rider is available to city, county and tribal employees responsible for transportation safety.

He is available to assist with:

  • Helping identify areas for safety improvements on the agency's road network.
  • Identifying crash sites by severity, number of crashes, or types of crashes.
  • Identifying potential benefits for a variety of safety improvements for both spot and system-wide crash reduction.
  • Calculating benefit-cost ratios.
  • Navigating the funding application process through ODOT.
  • Determining if a project has enough benefit to be placed in the Statewide Transportation Improvement Program

Funding Options

A number of funding options are available to local agencies for transportation projects. Our safety circuit rider can help identify the best source of funds for your project and assist with the application process.

All Roads Transportation Safety

The All Roads Transportation Safety, or ARTS, program uses federal funds to reduce the number of crashes and the severity of crashes on city streets, county roads, tribal roads and state highways. This program funds safety improvements on any road experiencing a crash history to improve the either spot locations or safety improvements over a large geographic area.

Statewide Transportation Improvement Program

The Statewide Transportation Improvement Program is Oregon’s four-year transportation capital improvement program. It applies to projects on the federal, state, city, and county transportation systems, multimodal projects (highway, passenger rail, freight, public transit, bicycle and pedestrian), and projects in the National Parks, National Forests, and Indian tribal lands.
