US 1 Safety Evaluation

Fri, 09/22/2017 - 2:43pm
The US 1 Safety Evaluation is a project to identify short-term actions to improve safety for people walking and bicycling along US 1. Safety for other transportation modes—motor vehicles and transit—is also being considered. The Evaluation will identify specific locations and segments for study and recommended improvements based on historical crash data, known areas with high pedestrian and bicycle activity, and input from government agencies and from the public.
Field visits will be made to these locations/segments to assess how current conditions contribute to existing hazards, and then develop short-term actions that can address hazards. Recommended actions may include engineering, enforcement, and education/awareness.
The Office of Transportation will host two all-day, drop-in, open houses to solicit public input about transportation safety in the US 1 Corridor between Elkridge and North Laurel for this effort.
The open house details are:
Monday, September 25
8:30AM to 5:00PM
