Public comment period begins for ADOT’s Strategic Highway Safety Plan and Active Transportation Safety Action Plan


The Arizona Department of Transportation (ADOT) is preparing a Strategic Highway Safety Plan (SHSP) to provide a framework for reducing fatalities and serious injuries on all public roadways. The plan is a data-driven, multi-year safety plan that establishes a statewide vision, goal and strategies for improving safety.
ADOT is concurrently developing Arizona’s first Active Transportation Safety Action Plan (ATSAP), which will recommend location-specific projects to improve safety for pedestrians and bicyclists where they interact with the state highway system.
