Regional Transportation Safety Plan

Regional Transportation Safety Plan

In 2017, the Connecticut Department of Transportation (CTDOT) published the Connecticut Strategic Highway Safety Plan (SHSP) to guide the State in reducing injuries and fatalities along Connecticut roadways. This Regional Transportation Safety Plan (RTSP) is in congruence with the Connecticut SHSP. It will serve as a road map and strategy to help the Western Connecticut Region and its 18 municipalities collaborate with the State in reducing injury and fatal crashes. It will also serve to increase safety awareness and allow the member towns, cities, and the region to focus on their transportation safety issues.
