CAMPO Area Transportation Safety Plan
The Corvallis Area MPO is currently developing a Transportation Safety Plan for the MPO area, which will help to identify transportation safety concerns for all modes of transportation in the CAMPO area and identify mitigation measures for those concerns.
The goal of this planning effort is to identify and prioritize safety improvements throughout the CAMPO planning area that can be made as funding and resources become available.
The geographic scope of this project includes the entire Corvallis Urbanized Area, which is composed of the cities of Corvallis, Philomath and Adair Village along with all land within their respective urban growth boundaries and adjacent densely populated areas of Benton County.
To help identify safety concerns and areas for safety improvements, we will use ODOT roadway crash data, input from local jurisdictions and local transportation advisory groups, and public input. Data cannot always tell the full story, so your input is very important to this process.
This planning effort is included in CAMPOís UPWP and the final product will be adopted as an addendum to the RTP.

You may need to download the Google Earth program to use this tool. Once you zoom into the geographic area you are interested in, click on any of the crash data points to review specific information about that particular crash. Data is from the Oregon Department of Transportation and covers the years 2007- 2011. Learn more about ODOT's crash data on the ODOT Transportation Data webpage
