Transportation Safety Plan

East Central Intergovernmental Association (ECIA) and the Institute for Transportation at Iowa State University (InTrans) are developing a transportation safety action plan to identify issues and eliminate fatalities and serious injuries for all roadway users - pedestrians, bicyclists, transit users, and drivers. With community input the plan will identify and prioritize infrastructure projects and policies to address safety issues. The plan will also map out strategies for funding and implementing the plan’s recommendations.

Development of the plan is being funded by a US DOT Safe Streets and Roads for All (SS4A) planning grant. The grant will fund development of a comprehensive safety action plan for 58 cities. 57 of the 58 cities are located in four Iowa counties: Clinton, Delaware, Dubuque, and Jackson. The remaining city, East Dubuque, is located in Jo Daviess County, Illinois. The study area does not include the city of Clinton, Iowa or the unincorporated areas of the four Iowa counties.  Clinton has a previously adopted transportation safety plan and planning for the unincorporated areas will be done as part of a separate project that is being carried out by the county engineers.  See the map of the study area below.

Summer Community Input Events
ECIA staff will be attending area farmers' markets and other events this summer to gather community input for the plan. At these evnets, we are asking community members to help identify areas that are unsafe for walking, biking, rolling, driving, or using transit.
