Pierce County is creating a Vision Zero Action Plan (VIZO) with the goal of attaining zero fatalities and serious injury collisions among all modes of transportation in unincorporated Pierce County by 2035.
Pierce County Council Resolution R2022-118 directs the Planning & Public Works Department to prepare a Draft Plan with a goal of presenting it to the Council for consideration by Oct. 1, 2024.
Pierce County has secured a Safe Streets and Roads for All (SS4A) grant for creating the Plan and the County Council has authorized additional local funds.
The Vision Zero Action Plan is a data-driven effort that will identify strategies and actions addressing the root causes of fatalities and serious injury collisions.
VIZO will recommend a multi-faceted approach to improve traffic safety, including revisions to road design and operations, enforcement, education of road users, and specific project recommendations. A lens on equity will help guide implementation in specific areas of the County.
