Study Objective

drive safely, in memory of marker for cyclist killed by motoristVision Zero is an approach based on the belief that traffic death and injury is preventable – that these aren’t “accidents,” but the result of poor behaviors combined with unforgiving roadway designs. The MPO developed a Vision Zero Action Plan centered on four Action Tracks:

  • Paint Saves Lives – low-cost engineering strategies
  • One Message, Many Voices – public education strategies
  • Consistent and Fair – community-oriented law enforcement
  • The Future Will Not Be Like the Past – focusing on design standards

Using a data-driven approach, an early step in developing the Vision Zero Action Plan was to identify the county’s Top 20 High Injury Network (HIN) corridors, determined by the greatest number of fatalities and injuries per mile.

With strategies from “Paint Saves Lives” as a guide, this study focuses on eight of the Top 20 HIN corridors that are the responsibility of Hillsborough County, with the goal of recommending short-term, immediately implementable countermeasures (aka. quick fixes) to reduce serious injuries and fatalities.

Project Management

The project will be co-managed by the staff of the Hillsborough County Engineering and Operations Department and the Hillsborough Metropolitan Planning Organization.

The study areas will be assigned to several consultant teams. A Kickoff Meeting will be scheduled with all consultant teams and project managers after the scope is finalized. Among other topics, the project co-managers will review the project schedule, identify potential community leaders in those areas, and further discuss expectations.
