Bend Area Transportation Safety Action Plan
Develop a comprehensive safety program that systematically identifies and prioritizes safety projects and establishes a proactive approach to reducing crashes on all roadways within the City. This initial TSAP will create a baseline from which to measure progress in reducing crash frequency and severity. The City has stated a commitment to conduct future TSAP updates.
Long Term Vision
Short Term Goals:
Apply engineering, education, enforcement, emergency response, and evaluation (a broad base of strategies)
Establish a proactive approach to reducing crashes on all roadways
Incorporate safety performance standards into the Capital Improvement Program (CIP) prioritization process and the development review process
Update roadway design standards to improve safety performance
How does the plan fit with the Bend Transportation Plan updates?
The TSAP will be coordinated with the Bend TSP and MTP updates to result in a consistent set of adopted transportation safety recommendations and emphasis areas.
These recommendations may include any of the following:
• Updating the Capital Improvement Program (CIP) criteria and methods to incorporate safety performance;
• Updating the development review processes to incorporate safety performance;
• Updating roadway standards and standard details based on findings from the TSAP analysis;
• Identifying performance measures to track progress towards achieving the safety goals over time;
• Identifying new programs to improve education and/or enforcement;
• Identifying policy development needs to support the City’s long-term vision;
• Identifying data collection needs to reduce statistical bias in future updates of the TSAP;
• Considering public health connections and opportunities to support State and possible future City goals; and
• Recommending approaches for updating the TSAP (methods, frequency) to maintain a current, proactive Plan while continually enhancing the City’s roadway safety management program.
Study Area and Crash Data
Bend Safety Action Plan will focus on the area within the Urban Growth Boundary (UGB). This project will work in coordination with the Deschutes County TSAP throughout the project. Both projects will share the same crash data set and analysis methods for resource efficiencies.
You can access mapped crash data for the study period of 2012-2016 from Oregon Department of Transportation Crash Analysis on the city's interactive mapping tool. The data is under the Transportation layer. You can view crash data for the entire Deschutes County. Please contact Jovi Anderson if you have any questions with the process or the data.
