Staff will give a brief overview of the regional target-setting option for Federal Safety Performance Management (Safety PM) requirement, present 5-year rolling average crash trends for the region using the Safety PM metrics, and discuss the process and schedule. 

 9.      Frankford Avenue Multimodal Study

Frankford Avenue serves many roles for adjacent communities and for the City of Philadelphia: a thriving commercial corridor, an essential transit route, a high-volume arterial roadway, and a cultural center and destination. These roles bring different roadway users and travel modes into close contact, and conflict, on a daily basis. Due to frequent, high-impact crashes, the roadway is on Philadelphia's High Injury Network and PennDOT's Highway Safety Improvement Program. The purpose of the Frankford Avenue Multimodal Study is to identify traffic calming and roadway design strategies that better balance travel modes to serve all roadway users and the local community.
