A Local Road Safety Plan (LRSP) provides a framework for organizing stakeholders to identify, analyze, and prioritize roadway safety improvements on local roads.  The LRSP will analyze data from a range of sources in order to identify bicycle, pedestrian and vehicle incidents and collisions, as well as to identify other resident traffic concerns.  Starting mid-2022, the LRSP is required for the City to be eligible to apply for Highway Safety Improvement Program (HSIP) funds for safety improvement projects.
