The Burlington-Graham Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) is the first MPO in the state to adopt a regional Vision Zero safety plan. They have dedicated staff and funding to advance the MPO’s Safety Strategy plan and completed a needs assessment to identify areas of growth for their VZ program. Recognizing that traffic deaths and severe injuries are unacceptable and preventable, the BGMPO Technical Coordinating Committee and Transportation Advisory Committee wanted to develop a data-driven safe systems approach to reversing the region’s rising crash trends. The study was fully funded with a NCDOT Highway Safety Improvement Program (HSIP) grant. In its first year of plan implementation, BGMPO was awarded a $170,000 Planning and Demonstration Grant through the Safe Streets and Roads for All (SS4A) Discretionary Grant Program. The federal funds will be used to install CCTV cameras along High Injury Network signal locations.
