El Paso County is working on a road safety plan (press release here) to make roads safer and reduce deaths and serious injuries on county roads. The El Paso County Road Safety Plan will guide the county and partner agencies in implementing recommendations based on an innovative data-driven approach to traffic safety.
As a part of this effort, El Paso County will:
- Conduct a detailed analysis of current safety and crash trends in the region to understand where, why and how crashes occur.
- Identify priority locations and roadway types for safety improvements, education and enforcement priorities.
- Propose safety resolutions to the Board of County Commissioners for consideration.
El Paso County launched a comprehensive website to share project information with stakeholders and the public throughout the Road Safety Plan process. An El Paso County Road Safety Plan Literature Review has been completed outlining Local, state and national resources related to safety planning.
