Transportation Safety Action Plan Update

TSAP Public Review: June 17 - August 1

ODOT is inviting anyone interested in transportation safety to comment on the draft Transportation Safety Action Plan through August 1. Comments can be emailed to safety@odot.state.or.us or mailed to ODOT Planning, Attn: TSAP, 555 13th St. NE, Salem OR 97301.

The Oregon Transportation Safety Committee will discuss the plan and the public input received at its August meeting, with expected adoption of the final plan by the Oregon Transportation Commission in October.

Transportation Safety Action Plan

ODOT Transportation Safety Division and the Transportation Development Division are working together to update the Oregon Transportation Safety Action Plan.  The Plan is one of several statewide transportation mode and topic plans that further define and implement the Oregon Transportation Plan’s (OTP) goals, policies, strategies, and key initiatives.

Background

The existing Transportation Safety Action Plan was adopted in 2011 and focuses primarily on implementing actions.  In addition to meeting the State of Oregon’s needs, the Plan serves as Oregon’s Strategic Highway Safety Plan (SHSP) as required by federal law.  This federal law, now known as MAP-21, 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.
