What types of safety improvements are being considered along Highway 8?

Between 2011 and 2020, there have been over 1,100 crashes reported along Highway 8, with nine involving serious injury, and five involving fatalities. This project will analyze causes and locations of these crashes and develop mitigation strategies, which may include adding turn lanes, raised medians, widening shoulders, improving sight-lines, other potential ways to help deal with the existing and future capacity issues, and enhancing traffic control at major intersections. Properly managing access along the corridor will also improve traffic safety and mobility.
