Transportation Safety Planning

We Aim to Enhance the Safety of Our Transportation System for Everyone

Safety is our primary focus at CMRPC, shaping all our planning efforts. We believe that everyone in our region should reach home safely, regardless of their transportation method. Our consistent dedication to prioritizing the safety of all transportation users in the CMRPC region demonstrates this belief.

We aim to reduce preventable transportation incidents like crashes, injuries, and deaths in our region. We collaborate with our member communities to identify and address problem areas on the roads, using data-driven methods. Our goal is to find innovative solutions while considering the unique needs of each community.
