The Rural Champaign County Area Safety Plan was developed by staff at the Champaign-Urbana Urbanized Area Transportation Study (CUUATS), a program of CCRPC. The plan aims to develop a data-driven, strategic approach to address traffic safety concerns in the rural area of Champaign County. The rural area of Champaign County is the area outside the Champaign-Urbana Metropolitan Planning Area (MPA) boundary and inside the Champaign County boundary. The plan presents the analysis of crash trends, identifies emphasis areas based on a data-driven approach, and outlines effective strategies and approaches for each of the emphasis areas. The strategies are a compilation of the 4 Es (Education, Enforcement, Emergency Medical Services, and Engineering). The plan also lists critical (high priority) intersections and segments in the Champaign County Rural Area. This plan provides guidelines for safety stakeholders from the 4 Es to identify and implement safety improvements and programs in the effort to address safety concerns in the rural area of Champaign County.
