The final Highway Safety rule was issued in March 2016. The first targets must be set by State DOTs by August 2017, when State DOTs will submit their new Highway Safety Plans, including measures and targets for the upcoming year.
TPB staff have collected the latest data from each DOT and are refining it for the metropolitan planning area. Coordination with the State DOTs continues through participation in webinars and workshops. Target-setting by the TPB must occur within 180 days following the setting of State DOT targets, or by January 2018.
