Northeast Alabama Safe Streets
TARCOG Regional Safety Action Plan Survey Now Available
An online survey is being conducted as part of a new Regional Safety Action Plan that TARCOG is developing for DeKalb, Jackson, Marshall and portions of Limestone counties.
Lee Terry, TARCOG’s director of economic development and planning says the goal of the survey is to hear about the experiences of those living in Northeast Alabama regarding transportation and traffic safety. “We want residents to know that their input will help guide a coordinated effort to improve mobility for all and keep people safe on our roads, sidewalks, and bikeways,” Terrysaid. The survey will take about 5-10 minutes to complete. It is one of the first steps in developing the new Regional Safety Action Plan resulting from a $500,000 grant award from the Safe Streets and Roads for All (SS4A) grant from the Federal Highway Administration.
“The goal of this plan is to identify priority routes and intersections to target for safety improvements to reduce the occurrence of severe and fatal crashes,” Terry said.
He said public meetings to discuss the project will be scheduled in October and November. Once meeting times and locations are established, they will be posted on the TARCOG website and social media.
