The City of Sacramento seeks input from residents on ways to make their streets safer as part of the Vision Zero goal of eliminating traffic fatalities and serious injuries by 2027.
The City is hosting pop-up events and community workshops that will focus on the top five corridors in Sacramento with the highest numbers of fatal and serious crashes involving pedestrians, bicyclists and motorists.
“The City takes transportation safety seriously and has taken an ambitious step in adopting its ‘Vision Zero’ goal,” said Jennifer Donlon Wyant, Active Transportation Specialist. “Our goal is to educate the public, save lives, and create safe and welcoming streets for everyone.”
Residents are encouraged to stop by at any of the following workshops. Each meeting/event focuses on a different corridor.
Saturday, Nov. 10
9:30 to 10:15 a.m.
Thursday, Nov. 15
5 to 7 p.m.
6:30 to 8 p.m.
Friday, Nov. 16
4 to 6 p.m.
Wednesday, Dec. 5

In 2017, the City of Sacramento identified the five corridors in Sacramento with the highest numbers of fatal and serious crashes involving pedestrians, bicyclists, and motorists. The top five corridors are Marysville Boulevard, El Camino Avenue, Broadway/Stockton Boulevard, South Stockton Boulevard and Florin Road.
Information gleaned from the workshops will be included in The Vision Zero Top Five Corridor Study. The study will analyze the factors that contribute to these corridors’ high crash rate. Based on technical analysis, community input, and best practices in roadway safety and design, the study will identify improvements for each of these corridors that can be implemented in the near term.
