SRPEDD's SS4A Action Plan
SRPEDD, on behalf of the 27 communities in Southeastern Massachusetts was awarded a Safe Streets and Roads for All (SS4A) planning grant through USDOT to develop a Safety Action Plan.
In collaboration with local communities, residents, and state and federal partners, SRPEDD will use the SS4A planning grant to develop a Regional Safety Action Plan. The plan will identify improvements for high crash locations that will increase roadway safety and significantly reduce and eliminate roadway fatalities and serious injuries for all users, including pedestrians, bicyclists, public transportation, and motor vehicles. Communities and projects identified in the Plan will automatically qualify for SS4A construction funding in future years.
The study will be data driven with an equity lens, focusing heavily on the safe travel of vulnerable road users, such as pedestrians and bicyclists, and on proactively addressing areas of deficiencies for these users before injuries and deaths occur.
