The City of Richland is developing a Comprehensive Safety Action Plan (CSAP) to guide future transportation safety improvements. The City is seeking the input of citizens to help identify the community's transportation safety concerns in the City of Richland.
Richland currently has a 2022 Local Road Safety Plan (LRSP) adopted by City Council on March 1, 2022 (Resolution 2022-33). It was developed in conjunction with the City’s consultant DKS Associates and used to apply for the 2022 City Safety Program under the Highway Safety Improvement Program (HSIP) administered by the Washington State Department of Transportation (WSDOT). The purpose of the LRSP is to reduce fatal and serious injury crashes using engineered infrastructure solutions. The plan studied crashes on Richland’s entire road network, developed priorities for safety improvements, and proposes solutions to mitigate crashes on Richland’s street system. The City was awarded two City Safety grants offered by the WSDOT in 2022. The current LRSP requires the completion of a CSAP in order to be eligible for additional grants.
This upgrade of the City of Richland’s 2022 LRSP to a CSAP will allow the City to apply for a “Safe Streets and Road for All” Implementation Grant in the future.
The survey is open through March 10, 2023.
