Transportation Safety Action Plan Update

Transportation Safety Action Plan Formally Adopted by OTC

The Oregon Transportation Commission formally adopted the 2016 Oregon Transportation Safety Action Plan on Friday October 14, 2016.

Transportation Safety Action Plan

The existing Transportation Safety Action Plan focuses primarily on implementing safety programs and practices that address significant safety problems such as the rising death toll for pedestrians and roadside workers, secondary crashes occurring on our urban freeways, inadequate emergency response services and conflicts between motor vehicles and other travel modes.

The Plan serves as Oregon’s Strategic Highway Safety Plan (SHSP) as required by federal law (MAP-21). This federal law continues a requirement that SHSPs be updated every five years, and adds additional requirements for inclusion of Highway Safety Improvement Program planning elements.

Oregon's transportation safety programs rely on relationships among ODOT’s Transportation Safety Division and numerous other ODOT, state, tribal, regional and local government interests.  For more general information, visit the Transportation Safety Action Plan website.
