Pinal County and the Sun Corridor Metropolitan Planning Agency are updating the Pinal County Strategic Transportation Safety Plan.  We request your attendance for a presentation and open discussion on transportation safety within Pinal County on May 16th in the San Tan Valley. The attached postcard contains a link to our public survey and mapping tool for anyone to provide feedback and information on their safety concerns.


Pinal County is divided between two MPO’s, Sun Corridor MPO and Maricopa Association of Governments (MAG), and one COG, Central Arizona Governments (CAG). All three planning agencies completed Strategic Transportation Safety Plans (STSPs) for their individual planning areas in 2016, 2015, and 2017 respectively. In 2019, Sun Corridor MPO completed the first Pinal County Strategic Transportation Safety Plan to address the needs of the entire County in a single, cohesive, and comprehensive document.

The Sun Corridor MPO is completing the Pinal County Safety Plan/SCMPO Network Screening Crash and Analysis Tools Update that will update the 2019 Pinal County Strategic Transportation Safety Plan. This update will address the necessary steps and elements, from a regional transportation planning perspective, to reduce the risk of death and serious injury to all transportation users in Pinal County.

The Pinal County Safety Plan Update is being developed in close coordination with Arizona’s Strategic Highway Safety Plan (SHSP). This ensures that federal requirements are met, statewide/local consistency is prevalent, and unique regional needs are addressed.

Over the last 5 years, the Pinal County region recorded over 22,000 crashes that led to 360 deaths and 10,473 injuries, including 1,120 serious injuries. Our vision is zero deaths. The Pinal County Safety Plan will provide a regionally focused, data-driven framework for increasing traffic safety on roadways across northern Arizona. The Plan focuses on strategies and actions drawn from best practices proven to reduce traffic-related deaths and serious injuries. Our vision is zero deaths.

The primary outcome for the Pinal County Safety Plan Update includes the following:

  • Safety System Performance
  • Network Screening Methodologies for Prioritization of Transportation Safety Needs
  • Identification and Analysis of Available Resources for a Transportation Safety Perspective
  • Regional Vision and Goals for Transportation Safety
  • Emphasis Areas, Goals, and Performance Measures
  • Transportation Safety Strategies
  • A Strategy to Improve Safety Project Development Process
  • Implementation Plan
  • Identification and Prioritization of Candidate Transportation Safety Projects
  • Benefit/Cost Ratio Tabulation
