Since 2005, there have been about 3,500 traffic collisions resulting in over 750 injuries annually in the urbanized area of McLean County. In the same period, over 170 people have been killed by traffic crashes — more than 12 people per year on average.
Drafted by Bloomington-Normal transportation system users, experts, and designers who volunteered their time, attention, and experience to envision the safe transportation system our community deserves, this is the Go:Safe Action Plan.
MCRPC considered and unanimously adopted the Action Plan at their April 7, 2021commission meeting. Watch meeting recording here. The Adopted Plan with Appendixes A & B are availiable below.
The Go:Safe Action Plan intends to:
Unite leaders across the McLean County transportation system with a shared framework and language for prioritizing safety.
Empower citizens of the Bloomington-Normal urbanized area to participate in the transportation system as user-owners.
Bolster competitive applications for public funding opportunities.
Eliminate fatalities and life-changing injuries from our transportation system by 2030
