Local Road Safety Plan Peer Exchange (Nov. 15 & 16 @ Kurz Purdue Technology Center, West Lafayette) 

Join us for a FREE peer exchange and learn how a Local Road Safety Plan (LRSP) can benefit your agency and let you access new federal funds for projects. Come hear firsthand from other local agencies in Indiana what they learned in completing their LRSP. Experts from FHWA, INDOT, & INLTAP will also lead discussions and working groups as you start development of your own LRSP. This event is suitable to any local agency personnel and stakeholders interested in Local Road Safety Plans, including those from public health, law enforcement, planning, etc.

Space is limited. Priority registration given to local agencies through 10/31/22.

This will be an interactive workshop where participants will work hands-on with their agency’s crash data. We ask that locals pre-register by 10/31/22 to allow us time to compile your crash data. Late registrations may have to work with generic crash data.
