Alta helped the City of Nashville join dozens of cities who have made the commitment to change the status quo and prioritize traffic safety for everyone through their very own Vision Zero Action Plan.
Alta helped Nashville/Davidson County develop the county’s first comprehensive Vision Zero Action Plan as well as separate, fiscally constrained and detailed Implementation Plan. This data-driven and community focused plan will help guide Metro’s investment in traffic safety improvements over the next five years.
Alta used the latest available data and digital mapping techniques to provide a comprehensive process for identifying and prioritizing safety improvements. Alta also facilitated a robust stakeholder and public engagement process comprised of task force meetings, TDOT focus group meetings, online user surveys, intercept surveys, public focus groups, and stakeholder listening sessions. This information was combined with a systemic safety analysis to understand and develop a High-Injury Network (HIN) for the county. HINs help prioritize future improvements by identifying segments in road networks where pedestrian and bicycle collisions have occurred.
To assist with understanding the data and prioritizing investments, Alta developed an easy to navigate online data dashboard that helps visualize the crash patterns and areas in Nashville that are particularly unsafe for people walking, biking and driving. This dashboard helps build the case for change in Metro Nashville, identifies evaluation metrics for full transparency, and showcases potential locations for future countermeasures.
