Learn More About The Safety Plan And Future Transportation Safety Projects

By Taylor Barker, GCI

With 530 fatal crashes on roadways within Pinal County between 2008 and 2017, the Sun Corridor Metropolitan Planning Organization, in cooperation with Central Arizona Governments, Maricopa Association of Governments, and Pinal County, is developing a comprehensive Strategic Transportation Safety Plan for the cities, towns, and tribal communities located within Pinal County. The goal of the study is to identify crash trends and safety issues, develop strategies to reduce the number of crashes, and implement solutions for safer travel in the county.

Community members can learn more about the transportation safety plan by attending one of the upcoming meetings. Each meeting will be an open-house format with a brief presentation at approximately 5:10 p.m. Attendees will have an opportunity to meet with members of the study team for informal discussion on the study recommendations and view crash map data from the study. The same information will be presented at each meeting.
