Motorists traveling four stretches of highway across Kansas will now see increased traffic safety messaging and new signage as part of the Safety Corridor Pilot Program.
The Safety Corridor Pilot Program is a five-year initiative to reduce fatalities and serious injuries in the selected safety corridors. The safety corridors were selected based on a history of fatal and serious injury crashes, availability of additional law enforcement and input from local transportation safety partners. One of the four corridors includes Highway 69 in Crawford County, from the U.S. 400 junction north through Frontenac and Pittsburg to the U.S. 160 junction.
The Safety Corridor Pilot Program is a strategic initiative of the Drive To Zero Coalition. The Drive To Zero Coalition's objective is to reduce fatal and serious injury crashes on Kansas roadways.
This Safety Corridor Pilot Program will run until 2028. Secondary educational messages in schools and businesses along the four corridors will be distributed beginning in August. For more information, visit the corridor website. A link is available here.
