Washington’s Corridor Safety Program helps communities improve traffic safety in high-crash corridors.
We help coordinate and fund the corridor projects. The projects themselves are locally led, and typically include community, business, engineering, enforcement, and emergency services organizations.
What is a corridor?
We define a corridor as a section of road (or a set of roads) that has an unusually high number of crashes.
How is a corridor selected?
- Washington State Department of Transportation (WSDOT) statistics must show that an area has a significant crash problem.
- The community must be ready to coordinate a corridor safety project.
