Office of Safe Streets

Safe streets matter to everyone and DVRPC pursues an active, wide-ranging approach to improve them. The Office of Safe Streets is involved in a great many of DVRPC's efforts, from coordinating the Regional Safety Task Force and road safety audits, to safety-related assistance on key DVRPC publications like the Long-Range Plan and corridor studies. DVRPC embraces Vision Zero, a road safety framework premised on the belief that no loss of life on our regional roadway network is acceptable. Our work advances the region toward this goal and supports our planning partners' transportation safety efforts to eliminate roadway deaths and serious injuries. The links below cover recent publications by the Office of Safe Streets and provide access to additional resources.

Recent Publications

Regional Safety Task Force

The Task Force is a multi-disciplinary team that meets regularly to share information and offer guidance to DVRPC's efforts.

Regional Crash Data Viewer

The crash data tool is a webmap designed to facilitate analysis of crash history at regional, county, municipal and user-defined geographies. The product is intended for use by DVRPC's project partners and the general public.

Road Safety Audits

Road Safety Audits (RSAs) are a proven safety countermeasure championed by the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA). DVRPC has an active program dedicated to conducting RSAs throughout the region.

New Jersey Local Safety Program

The New Jersey Local Safety Program is a federally-funded program established by NJDOT, and facilitated by the state’s MPOs, to advance safety improvement projects on county and local roadways. This is a competitive annual program that funds the design and construction phases of safety projects through the federal Highway Safety Improvement Program (HSIP).

Data Navigator - Crash Data Summaries

DVRPC's Data Navigator is a one-stop data repository for all geographically-based Census and DVRPC data, including crash summaries by region, county, and municipality. Data results are viewable online and downloadable.

Cecil B. Moore Vision Zero

Vision Zero is a strategy to eliminate all traffic-related deaths and severe injuries, while increasing safety, health, and mobility for all. As part of the City of Philadelphia’s Vision Zero Action Plan 2025, the City identified priority corridors and intersections for future improvement under a Vision Zero Capital Plan. Cecil B. Moore Avenue from Willington Street to 10th Street was identified as a top ten corridor. 

DVRPC is analyzing crash and traffic data, engaging the community and other local stakeholders, and conducting a road safety audit of the corridor to inform the development of a conceptual plan for safety improvements on Cecil B. Moore Avenue.
