The Portland Area Comprehensive Transportation System (PACTS) is undertaking the “High Crash Locations Assessment” to improve the safety of High Crash Locations (HCLs) in its 18-member municipal region. The purpose of the project is to work with local officials and staff, MaineDOT, and VHB (the project consultant) to conduct a preliminary review (Phase I) of 25-30 sites, followed by a more in-depth review (Phase II) of 10 sites. 

The final report will provide a summary, visuals, and cost estimates for MaineDOT, PACTS, and its member municipalities to use as a guide toward implementing constructible solutions that will yield tangible safety improvements.

Read a more detailed proposal and scope of work from VHB.

A draft report may be ready by the end of 2019.
