Phoenix City Council Approves Vision Zero Approach to Road Safety Action Planhttps://www.phoenix.gov/newsroom/street-transportation/2217Street Transportation1/25/2022 11:30:00 PMhttps://www.phoenix.gov/newssite/Lists/NewsArticle/Attachments/2217/HAWK.pngPhoenix City Council Approves Vision Zero Approach to Road Safety Action Plan<div class="ExternalClass0E036EEBE87B4133A1B46A9D90140955"><html> <p>​​The Phoenix City Council approved during its Tuesday meeting to incorporate the goals of Vision Zero into the comprehensive Road Safety Action Plan that is being developed by the Street Transportation Department. City Council will need to formally adopt the safety plan during a subsequent meeting.<br></p><p><a href="https://youtu.be/HSfUGYuY4Mw" target="_blank">Watch a video recording of the City Council Policy Session from January 25​</a><br></p> <p>“Far too many of our residents are getting hurt. By incorporating Vision Zero into the work we've already begun, we expect to reduce the number of fatal and serious-injury crashes," said Mayor Kate Gallego. “We also believe this will help us be far more competitive for federal grants we can then use to continue to improve the overall safety profile."  </p> <p>Vision Zero is built around a core philosophy that traffic-related deaths and serious injuries are preventable. The <a href="https://visionzeronetwork.org/" target="_blank">Vision Zero Network</a> recognizes cities that take action towards adopting this approach to road safety as "Vision Zero Communities."</p> <p>To improve safety for all users of Phoenix's roadways, the Street Transportation Department is developing a comprehensive Road Safety Action Plan and is currently facilitating the public engagement phase of that process. Community members are encouraged to provide input that will help shape the plan by taking an online interactive survey available at <a href="/streets/roadsafety" target="_blank">Phoenix.gov/RoadSafety</a>. The survey remains open through February.</p> <p>In March 2021, City Council unanimously approved funding for development of the comprehensive Road Safety Action Plan. The plan is scheduled to be finalized and delivered to the community in winter 2022.​<br></p><br></html></div>https://www.phoenix.gov/streetsNewsstreet-transportation

These are the major highlights from the 2021 calendar year.</p><p><strong>Paving Season</strong> <br>The annual paving season began in March, when 55th Avenue received mill and overlay from Pinnacle Peak to Happy Valley Road. The season ended in November, with the completion of Grant Street from I-17 to 19th Avenue. In all, 518 miles of city roadway received paving treatments in 2021. That number includes all work completed as part of the city's <a target="_blank" href="/streets/accelerated-pavement-maintenance-program">Accelerated Pavement Maintenance Program</a>. </p><p>Breakdown of pavement treatment projects:</p><p style="text-decoration:underline;">Major streets</p><ul dir="" class="" style=""><li>64 miles paved (mill and overlay)</li><li>45 miles treated with other pavement preservation (fog seal, fractured aggregate surface treatment, micro or slurry seal)</li><li>87 miles crack sealed</li></ul><p style="text-decoration:underline;">Local streets</p><ul dir="" class="" style=""><li>21 miles paved (mill and overlay)</li><li>220 miles treated with other pavement preservation (fog seal, fractured aggregate surface treatment, micro or slurry seal)</li><li>81 miles crack sealed</li></ul><p>Additionally, 3,724 pedestrian ramps were upgraded to current Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) regulations and to meet federal requirements.</p><p><strong>Accelerated Pavement Maintenance Program</strong><br> During August 2021, the <a target="_blank" href="/streets/accelerated-pavement-maintenance-program">Accelerated Pavement Maintenance Program</a> celebrated the completion of more than 500 miles of paving since its inception in 2019. In 2018, City Council authorized $200 million in <a href="/t2050" target="_blank">Transportation 2050</a> (T2050) funding over five years to accelerate pavement maintenance. </p><p><strong>Cool Pavement Program</strong><br> In October, the next phase of the city's <a target="_blank" href="/streets/coolpavement">Cool Pavement Program</a> began as work crews started <a href="/newsroom/street-transportation/2113" target="_blank">applying a cool pavement seal coat to neighborhood streets within the boundary of 19th and 15th avenues between Broadway and Roeser roads in South Phoenix</a>. <br></p><p>This next round of the ongoing program and study will analyze two new asphalt coatings that have higher reflective values than the material applied to nine select citywide sites in 2020. One coating is the same light gray color and the other is a darker gray. City staff and researchers from Arizona State University also will analyze the durability of the coating during this next phase. </p><p>In September, <a target="_blank" href="/newsroom/street-transportation/2064">the results of the first year of the program and study were announced</a>, which showed that the average surface temperature in test locations is 10.5 to 12 degrees Fahrenheit lower than traditional asphalt at noon and during the afternoon hours, and that surface temperatures at sunrise averaged 2.4 degrees Fahrenheit lower.  </p><p><strong>7th Street Bridge Over the Rio Salado</strong><br> After an expedited six-month repair and reconstruction project, the <a target="_blank" href="/newsroom/street-transportation/2043">7th Street bridge reopened on August 28</a>. Following a gas utility line fire, the bridge, and city trails under the bridge, had been closed since February 28.

Other improvements included upgraded traffic signals, landscaping enhancements, the addition of shade structures, and new pavement and roadway striping.​ <br></p><p><a href="/newsroom/street-transportation/2167" target="_blank">The project also features the city's first two-way protected bicycle lane that runs along 3rd Avenue from Roosevelt Street to McDowell Road</a>. A <a target="_blank" href="/streets/3rdAnd5thAvenuesNorth">future project</a> on 3rd and 5th avenues north of McDowell Road, currently in the planning phase, will continue the two-way protected bike lanes up to Thomas Road.</p><p><strong>Road Safety Action Plan</strong><br> To improve safety for all users of Phoenix's roadways, the department is developing a <a target="_blank" href="/streets/roadsafety">Road Safety Action Plan</a>. In November, the community engagement phase of that process began with a citywide virtual public meeting. Community input is integral to the formation of the plan, and through February 2022 residents are encouraged to participate in an <a target="_blank" href="https://live.metroquestsurvey.com/?u=kq5n5y#%21/?p=web">online interactive survey</a>. </p><p>The <a target="_blank" href="/streets/roadsafety">Road Safety Action Plan</a> will address these key priorities:</p><ul dir="" class="" style=""><li>Conduct a comprehensive evaluation of data and current conditions</li><li>Establish a clear vision and mission to unite residents, stakeholders and staff across multiple city departments with a common goal</li><li>Determine a High Injury Network (HIN) that identifies problem locations and helps determine solutions and prioritization</li><li>Provide inclusive public engagement in the planning process</li><li>Create new and modernize existing safety evaluation tools</li><li>Provide a system of recommendations that respond to data and public input, and connect to the 4 E's of Traffic Safety: Evaluation, Engineering, Enforcement, Education</li></ul><p><strong>Scan the Street for Wheels and Feet – Always Stop on Red!</strong><br> In November, the department's Pedestrian Safety section debuted a new public service announcement, titled <a target="_blank" href="https://youtu.be/LYMtwQWUvFw">“Always Stop on Red!"</a>.
