What is a Local Road Safety Plan?
A Local Road Safety Plan (LRSP) is a locally focused data-driven plan that considers the unique and diverse safety issues of local roadways and provides a framework to improve safety and save lives. The LRSP is a Proven Safety Countermeasure of the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) Office of Safety. The process results in a prioritized list of issues, risks, actions, and improvements that can be used to reduce fatalities and serious injuries on the area roadways. The Kingsport MTPO Local Road Safety Plan was developed over a 12-month period through collaboration with the FHWA Office of Safety, a consultant team, and a diverse group of stakeholders.
