Coryell County seeking to develop a Transportation Safety Act Plan

Posted

Coryell County is currently in the process of developing a Transportation Safety Act Plan to identify and address roadway and transportation safety concerns. The plan will feature projects that are to improve dangerous roads identified by the community.

Current potential projects include:

  • Traffic signal and signal improvements.
  • New and improved sidewalks and crosswalks.
  • Installing bike lanes, turn lanes, and guardrails.
  • Reduced speed limits.
  • Safer school routes.

This comprehensive plan will identify many areas of concern to provide a framework to address concerns and reduce injuries and fatalities.

Locals and community members are to complete a survey which will contribute to the plan by Thursday, Feb. 29.

The survey will take anywhere from five to 10 minutes and is comprised of questions that seek perspectives on transportation issues, such as roadway conditions and safety concerns.

Participation in the survey is voluntary and must be completed by an adult. Your name will not be collected, and your survey responses will be confidential. There will be an option to enter your email to receive additional information about the planning process.

To complete the survey electronically, visit s.surveyplanet.com/vedgspc1. Paper copies will also be distributed at various venues, including the county offices.

The survey data will be analyzed, and the results will be summarized and presented in the Safety Action Plan that will be completed in the summer of 2024.
