The Regional Transportation Planning Agencies for the counties of Amador, Calaveras, and Alpine have teamed together to study roadway safety throughout the region. The goal of this Systemic Safety Analysis is to identify systemic safety measures that could prevent life threatening crashes by applying the 4 E's: Education, Encouragement, Engineering, and Emergency Response. Conceptual projects will be developed based upon the findings and selection of effective countermeasures. Ultimately, the agencies will develop grant applications to fund and implement priority safety projects.
Amador, Calaveras, and Alpine Counties are all rural neighboring counties located in the foothill and mountainous region of the Sierra Nevadas between Sacramento, Lake Tahoe, and Yosemite Valley. The counties' elevations range from 100ft to 11,500ft with popular scenic highways including State Routes 4, 49, and 88, that connect residents and visitors to our historic downtowns and recreational opportunities in Eldorado, Stanislaus, and Humboldt Toiyabe National Forests.
