Local Road Safety Plans are a valuable part of the data-driven approach to a safer road infrastructure for all users. LTAP’s Local Road Safety Program (LRSP) Crash Data Workshop will provide the tools necessary for local agencies to prioritize road safety issues, develop basic road safety plans, and generate project applications to the Local Road Safety Program or other funding sources.
Who Should Attend
This workshop is intended for engineers, planners, local agency public works personnel, and safety professionals who are responsible for evaluating crash data and developing safety plans, or are directly responsible for road safety on locally owned roads in Louisiana. Public agency members of Regional Safety Coalitions, particularly those involved in the Infrastructure and Operations emphasis area, are encouraged to attend. While there are no prerequisites for this workshop, basic knowledge of local road safety issues or prior participation in LTAP’s Road Safety 365 course is suggested.
Upon completion of the workshop, participants will be able to:
- Interpret the LRSP Parish Crash Data Profile, including the route screening process and overrepresented crash statistics on locally owned roads.
- Describe the content and usage of the DOTD Crash3 database in evaluating crash types and patterns.
- Prepare an LRSP Roadway Assessment Form from available resources, perform a risk assessment of the crash data and roadway features, and select appropriate crash countermeasures.
- Generate a basic Local Road Safety Plan for their jurisdiction, including candidates for in-house improvements as well as a list of projects suitable for application to the LRSP.
- Prioritize and group candidate LRSP projects based on similar countermeasures, or geographic proximity to priority routes and begin the LRSP application process.
Participants will be awarded 3 PDH’s for completion of this workshop
