GVITE Online Presentation: City of Richmond Road Safety Improvement Program: Top 20 Collision-Prone Locations

March 19 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm PDT

Virtual Event

About the Presentation:

In 2019, the City of Richmond partnered with ICBC and retained ISL Engineering and Land Services, in association with G. Ho Engineering Consultants, to undertake the Network Screening Study (the Study). The objective of the Study was to review all 1,617 intersections in the city to identify and prioritize the top 20 locations with the highest risk of collisions, and develop mitigation measures to determine where road safety improvement investments should be directed to achieve the greatest safety benefits.  The results of the Study lead to various actions taken by the City as part of its overall effort to address road safety issues.

This presentation will provide the background, methodology, and Study findings, as well as new safety initiatives taken by the City.
