Champaign County Strategic Highway Safety Plan

In an effort to achieve zero fatalities on roadways in Illinois, the Illinois Department of Transportation (IDOT) initiated a process to develop county Strategic Highway Safety Plans. This Strategic Highway Safety Plan for Champaign County was prepared as part of the Illinois statewide highway safety planning process. The Plan was data-driven, with a goal to reduce severe crashes (those involving fatalities and serious injuries) by documenting at-risk locations, identifying effective safety improvement strategies, and better positioning the county to compete for available safety funds. The Plan includes a description of the connection to safety planning efforts at the national level, state level (through the Illinois Strategic Highway Safety Plan and the Highway Safety Improvement Program), and Metropolitan Planning Organization level. Specifically, this Champaign County Safety Plan includes:

  • Background information
  • A description of the Safety Emphasis Areas
  • Data analysis of each of the emphasis areas
  • Identification of a short list of high priority, low-cost Safety Strategies
