City Of Williston Seeks Participants For Infrastructure Safety Action Plan Focus Group

Williston – The City of Williston is seeking 10 participants for a focus group on infrastructure safety in Williston. The effort is part of the Infrastructure Safety Action Plan for which the City of Williston, with assistance from SRF Consulting and Interstate Engineering, has received funding from the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA).

The Infrastructure Safety Action Plan will combine data about crashes and other transportation information with community input. This information will be used to prioritize transportation infrastructure projects that address safety challenges for those traveling in the Williston area and to support future funding opportunities for safety projects.

This focus group would be one of a series of focus groups that will speak directly to citizens regarding their concerns. Input will be used in coordination with crash and safety data, community data, and additional analysis to form project priorities during the planning process.

The plan is especially intended to identify and eliminate fatalities and serious injuries from vehicle crashes for everyone (pedestrians, bicyclists, transit users, and drivers). The plan will focus on people and communities most affected by traffic-related injuries and fatalities—including pedestrians, bicyclists, and underserved segments of the city population—to improve safety for all users.

The plan will apply to all transportation systems (roads, sidewalks, and trails) within the city limits with a scheduled completion for the spring of 2024.

The focus group will be held in person at 2 p.m. Dec 20. Please email [email protected] to participate. Location details will be provided.
