2020 Bicycle/Pedestrian Safety Action Plan


To support the Lee County Metropolitan Planning Organization’s (Lee MPO) efforts to choose the most effective transportation projects to pursue and ultimately implement, Jacobs Engineering Group Inc. (Jacobs) conducted a detailed risk-based analysis to update the 2013 Bicycle and Pedestrian Safety Action Plan (BPSAP). The purpose of this report is to provide a roadmap that summarizes the process used to analyze crash data in Lee County and the resulting prioritization and countermeasure selections. To that end, this report includes:  Identified at-risk corridors and intersections, Overrepresentations in the pedestrian and bicycle crash data, which are the locations with the highest crash densities and are the best candidates for safety investment, Methodologies to prioritize a segment and intersection study network and the selection process of proven effective countermeasures to be recommended at the prioritized locations, An overview of how countermeasures were selected, and Assigned countermeasures for site-specific locations that will have a positive effect on the performance of pedestrian and bicycle safety through project development. This report is delineated into eight sections that detail the key drivers for Jacobs’ analytical process. 1. Introduction 2. Crash Review and Disaggregation 3. Network and Data Collection 4. Segment and Intersection Crash Analysis 5. Risk Factor Identification 6. Location Prioritization and Countermeasure Selection 7. Project Development 8. References In addition, the supplemental supporting information included in Appendices A, B, C, and D provide prioritized lists, project development methodologies and summaries and cost estimate information to guide the MPO in their next steps for project planning and implementation.  Also included below is the presentation given on the plan update.  Please see the specific links below for additional information.
