The County Safety Corridor Advisory Group was created by House Bill 3213, passed in the 2019 Legislative Session, in response to serious and fatal accidents occurring on local county roads. The Advisory Group is tasked with developing a pilot program for up to 5 counties to designate a length of road as a safety corridor.
House Bill 3213 identifies four legislative directives for the Advisory Group to complete.
- Select up to 5 Oregon counties to participate in the pilot program.
- Establish objective criteria for designating a county safety corridor.
- Establish requirements for the county safety corridors, including regular community engagement, heightened enforcement, engineering improvements, infrastructure investments, and public outreach.
- Establish content requirements for mandated reports to the Legislature.
