 Safe Streets Madison Report & Prioritization Tool – Adopted by the Common Council Aug 3, 2021

Safe Streets Madison Program Priorities

  • Implementing traffic safety measures in a fair and equitable manner to eliminate traffic deaths and serious injuries on City streets.
    • Data from the High Injury Network (HIN) is used to determine where safety improvements are most needed.
    • Improved traffic safety also helps foster walking, biking, and transit in the city.
  • Improving connectivity by closing gaps in the pedestrian and bicycle networks in a fair and equitable manner and ensuring that they are accessible for all ages and abilities.
    • Enhancing the pedestrian and bicycle networks encourages and facilitates walking, biking, and transit; and it will improve safety for vulnerable users by creating low-stress networks.
