Targeted Safety Improvement Program (TSIP)

TSIP

The mission of the City of Redmond's Targeted Safety Improvement Program is to identify existing and potential traffic safety problem areas and implement projects to reduce crashes, injuries, deaths, and their related losses through pro-active collision prevention, reactive collision response, and multi-modal safety consistent with the Transportation Master Plan.

Program

The Targeted Safety Improvement Program (TSIP) carries out the policy direction in the Transportation Master. The key elements of the program help to identify existing and potential traffic safety problem areas and implement projects to reduce traffic collisions using proactive and reactive strategies. TSIP uses a systematic method to clearly identify, evaluate, and recommend safety projects that will be of benefit to the Redmond community.

Projects considered for TSIP funding come from several sources: 

  • Unfunded or underfunded Neighborhood Traffic Calming Program projects
  • High accident locations identified through the City's Collision Reporting System
  • Traffic requests from citizens 
  • Requests made via the City's Traffic Safety Committee
  • Unfunded or underfunded 6-Year TIP project
  • City staff-identified traffic safety needs based on future land development
