Draft Minnesota Strategic Highway Safety Plan

The Draft 2020-2024 Minnesota Strategic Highway Safety Plan (SHSP) (PDF) was made available on February 19th. The 30-day public commenting period for the draft plan ended on March 20, 2020. Thank you to everyone who provided comments. Staff is currently addressing public comments and the final plan will be made available on this website in the coming months.

The Minnesota SHSP is a tool that identifies key areas to focus traffic safety resources and provides data driven, actionable strategies to reduce deaths and serious injuries on Minnesota roadways. Every five years, Minnesota updates the SHSP to reflect current and emerging crash trends and incorporate emerging safety strategies. The draft 2020-2024 Minnesota SHSP was developed by blending crash data analysis with input from the many diverse stakeholders working toward zero deaths on Minnesota roads. Targeted input to shape the SHSP’s focus areas, strategies, and tactics was gathered from stakeholders through multiple activities and venues, including the 2018 and 2019 TZD Statewide Conferences, the 2019 TZD Regional Workshops, and during meetings with the SHSP Steering Committee.
