The City is developing a Roadway Safety Plan to identify traffic safety challenges throughout Sunnyvale and find possible improvements. Once completed, the plan will be used to discover funding sources to begin the recommended improvements. This project will support the goals established by the Vision Zero Plan.

We're in the research and analysis phase of the project. Community feedback obtained at the project workshop helped identify major areas of concern (see Documents tab for workshop materials). The Roadway Safety Plan project team is analyzing the community feedback, along with current roadway conditions and collision data. This analysis will identify areas in critical need of attention and lead to potential safety improvements. The plan will be released fall 2019.
The Roadway Safety Plan will help prepare future grant funding applications for the design and construction of transportation safety improvements. The plan includes the following:
The Roadway Safety Plan is funded through a Systemic Safety Analysis Report Program grant provided by the California Department of Transportation (Caltrans). Caltrans defines “systemic analysis” as a proactive safety approach that focuses on evaluating a City’s entire transportation system based on a defined set of criteria.
