The Lee County Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO), in conjunction with the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) District One and other stakeholders, developed the Lee Countywide Bicycle & Pedestrian Safety Action Plan (BPSAP). The goal of the BPSAP is to reduce bicycle and pedestrian fatalities and severe injury crashes yearly. This crash reduction goal is consistent with those expressed in the Florida Strategic Highway Safety Plan. The action plan identifies a number of “action items” to be undertaken by responsible agencies on a short-term and long-term basis. One of the short-term action items is to conduct Bicycle/Pedestrian Road Safety Audits (RSA’s) on known high-crash corridors, with participation and support from all stakeholder agencies. To this end, ten roadway sections or intersections to be audited were identified during the BPSAP development process.
