  • Abstract:
    Local and regional governments have important roles to play in identifying and addressing safety issues on roadways

    within their jurisdictions. Congress recognized this need and passed legislation in 1998 requiring safety consideration

    in transportation plans at the local, regional, and State levels. Efforts have since been underway to increase the explicit

    consideration of safety in these planning processes. More recently, the focus has shifted to improving the linkage

    between Strategic Highway Safety Plans (SHSPs) and transportation planning documents, notably Statewide and

    Metropolitan Long Range Transportation Plans (LRTPs), which are required to consider strategies and services to

    improve the safety of the transportation system. In addition to these plans, States, Metropolitan Planning

    Organizations (MPOs) and local agencies typically develop other important transportation planning documents (e.g.,

    corridor, bicycle, freight, transit plans) that frequently include safety elements. Improving the coordination and

    linkages of the safety elements and priorities among these planning processes supports a comprehensive and holistic

    approach to transportation safety planning. It also provides additional opportunities to implement safety programs

    addressing key priorities throughout the State.

    This report provides a summary of the proceedings of the “Coordinating State and Regional Transportation Safety

    Planning through the SHSP Process” Peer Exchange held in New Orleans, Louisiana on May 22 and 23, 2013. The

    Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) sponsored the Peer Exchange in coordination with Louisiana Department of

    Transportation and Development (LA DOTD). The purpose of the Peer Exchange was to explore specific strategies the

    peer States could adopt to improve the coordination of regional and statewide safety planning efforts. Representatives

    from Louisiana, Nevada and Utah participated in the event (see Agenda A for the full list of participants).
