Town Hall Meeting For Infrastructure Safety Action Plan To Be Hosted March 20

WILLISTON.–A Town Hall meeting to discuss the Williston Infrastructure Safety Plan will be held at the Williston Community Library on March 20 from 4:30-8 p.m.

The City of Williston, with assistance from SRF Consulting and Interstate Engineering, has received funding from the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) to create the Infrastructure Safety Action Plan, which 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 community meeting will provide opportunities for the community to participate in the planning effort and see visualizations of data informing recommendations. There will be an opportunity for comment and prioritization of recommended safety strategies. The majority of the meeting will be open house format, with a brief presentation at 6:30 p.m. to give an explanation of the planning effort.

Williston residents are encouraged to stop in, as this is the time for citizens to further help define areas of concern and identify their preferred safety recommendations.

This plan is especially intended to identify and eliminate fatalities and serious injuries from vehicle crashes for everyone. 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. This meeting is open to the public.
