Lane Regional Safety and Security Plan - Planning Process 2015-2016

*Note: This webpage was used throughout the planning process for the most recent version of the Lane Regional Transportation Safety and Security Plan. The process outlined on this page is now complete.

The Lane Regional Transportation Safety and Security Plan (LRTSSP) will provide Lane County and the Central Lane MPO an opportunity to:
  • collect data; 
  • analyze and understand multi-modal safety conditions throughout the region; 
  • develop recommended countermeasures to reduce fatal and serious injury crashes; and
  • establish performance measures through which the region can monitor implementation.
The safety plan will be the result of a data-driven planning process and will establish a direction for policy development in the Regional Transportation Plan (RTP).

Stakeholder Advisory Team (SAT)

This planning process relies on input from a diverse group of stakeholders from multiple disciplines including law enforcement, engineering, education and marketing, advocacy, emergency medical service, transportation planning, and public health.  Agencies represented include:        
  • City of Eugene Police Department
  • City of Springfield Police Department
  • Lane County Sheriff
  • City of Eugene Engineering and Public Works
  • City of Springfield Engineering and Public Works
  • Lane County Engineering and Public Works
  • Oregon Department of Transportation - Region 2
  • Safe Routes to Schools - Eugene School District 4J
  • Oregon Department of Transportation Driver Education Program
  • Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD)
  • Lane County Fire Authority

Focus Groups

The safety plan's SAT will provide traffic safety expertise from their respective disciplines, but it will be necessary for focus area groups to better understand certain areas.  These areas may concentrate on safety problem areas such as drinking and drugged driving or non-motorized traffic safety, or focus on discipline areas and counter measures such as engineering design standards or law enforcement.  The SAT will decide the most appropriate way to organize the focus groups and gather additional information for the LRTSSP.

Data and Analysis

The safety plan development process will use a data-driven approach to assess current conditions and guide the overall process.   Data used in this planning effort includes the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's (NHTSA) maintained Fatality Analysis Reporting System (FARS), as well as, the Oregon Department of Transportation's Crash Data System (CDS).

Data summaries for this planning process can be found in the power point presentations presented at stakeholder meetings, as well as, through the MPO data portal, where crash data that is Summarized by Mode can be found.  The Core Measures data provides information related to safety measures adopted by Federal and State transportation safety agencies.  For more open ended exploration of the data portal, click Advanced User Portal to view more detailed crash data.
