1 Jurisdictionally Blind Safety Roadway Departure Crash- 2013

2 Map -21 – Major Themes for HSIP (Federal Highway Safety Improvement Program, Section 148 of Title 23) Emphasizes goal to reduce Fatal and serious injury crashes Emphasizes spending on all public roads Increased Funding for Highway Safety Improvement Program (HSIP) Requires Performance Based Measures (States set Targets) –Fatal and Serious injury Crashes per VMT –Number of Fatalities and Serious Injuries New roadway data and highway basemap requirements Maintains emphasis on data-driven approach

3 HSIP & Data Driven The objective of HSIP is to significantly reduce the occurrence of fatalities and serious injuries A data-driven approach uses crash data, risk factors, or other data supported methods to identify possible locations to achieve the greatest benefits The key to any good safety program is indentifying the best candidate locations for investment The traditional approach to safety is to identify “hot spot” locations, then try to indentify measures to implement. The systemic approach identifies a few proven low- cost measures to be widely implemented where there is evidence that they would be most useful The systemic approach complements the traditional approach

4 Oregon FA (Fatal + Serious Injury Crashes) % % % State Highways Urban Non-state Rural Non-state About 900 of the rural FA crashes are on 26,000* miles of County Roads About 300 or so non- state FA crashes are on 30,000* miles of tribal lands, BLM, Forest Service, local access and other roads About 1100 of the urban FA crashes are on 10,000* miles of City Streets FA crashes are on 8000* miles of State Highways *About 74,000 total public miles Safety in Oregon

5 Jurisdictionally Blind Safety ODOT met with representatives of the League of Oregon Cities (LOC) and the Association of Oregon Counties (AOC)-- Discussed the need for developing a safety program for all public roads (prior years ODOT just used HSIP funds on State Highways) Discussed moving towards a jurisdictionally blind safety program Memorandum of Understanding between ODOT, AOC and LOC

6 Program Principles Reduce Fatal and Serious Injury crashes Address safety on all public roads Data driven Blind to jurisdiction Overseen by ODOT Regions Commitments to current STIP maintained

7 Funding Principles Allocated to each ODOT Region based on Fatal and Serious injury crashes Strive for Proportional between urban and rural Projects focused on Fatal and Serious injury crash reductions A portion to behavioral strategies What do you see in this photo? What do the skids marks say?

8 Project Selection Principles Focus on fatal and serious injury reduction Primarily developed and overseen by ODOT Regional project selection must engage local jurisdictions Combine projects on state and local roads where possible Follow principles of practical design

9 How do we Transition? Funding for jurisdictionally blind starts in 2017 A transition program should be developed to bridge the gap from 2013 to 2017 The transition should focus on a few systemic fixes All parties should engage to develop a selection process We have to: Maintain projects in Current STIP Process already underway for STIP

10 Safety Funding for Local Rds For (Transition) –Allocate $10 million HSIP to local roads over three years –Allocate $1 million/year for strategies in TSAP For 2016 (Transition) –Allocate $6 million HSIP to local roads –Allocate $1 million for strategies in TSAP For 2017 and beyond –Implement “jurisdictionally blind” safety program Photo Credit: Peter Koonce

12 Transition Program ODOT will hire a consultant to facilitate the process in each region Local Jurisdictions will be asked to participate in selection of a few key systemic measures in each region Kick-off Meetings will occur in Apr-May 2013 ODOT regions will be in charge of delivering the projects

13 Stakeholders will review regional data: Number of Fatal and Serious Injury Crashes (F&A) Crash Data (Five Years) ODOT Region 2 – County Roads Oregon F&A 8,253 Urban 396 State Highways 3,989 County Roads 2,036 City Streets 2,228 Intersection 134 Non-Intersection 262 Top 4 Rear-End 66 Fixed Obj 91 Turning 28 Ped 24 Top 4 Turning 24 Angle 17 Fixed Obj 11 Rear-End 3 Top 4 Turning 20 Angle 8 Rear-End 5 Ped 3 Stop/Regulatory 57 Signal 37 Ped/Bi k 50* Intersection 234 Other/unk 95 Top 4 Fixed Obj 861 Non-Coll 165 Head-on 116 SS Meet 58 Top 4 Turning 54 Angle 35 Fixed Obj 33 Non-Coll 4 Top 4 Turning 5 Fixed Obj 2 Ped 1 Non-Coll 1 Stop/Regulatory 130 Signal 9 Ped/B ik 64* Other/unk 40 ROR 1161* Rural 1640 Non-Intersection 1405

15 Transition Program - Timing Timing of the projects still needs to be worked out- Regions likely to go through selection process with local stakeholders in summer of 2013 Project scoping and development in late 2013 Actual projects delivered in 2014
