​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Vision Zero Logo.pngThe Ann Arbor Moving Together Toward Vision Zero Comprehensive Transportation Plan  (Moving Together), completed in June 2021, set forth a list of strategies and opportunities for improving the safety of Ann Arbor's streets, and proposed a data-driven approach to prioritizing street improvements in the interest of public safety and enhanced mobility for all. ​​​

​The city is now moving into the implementation phase, which will include a suite of capital investments to be undertaken at various scales and a public outreach program.​​​

This annual snapshot will provide updates and progress on the Ann Arbor Moving Together Toward Vision Zero Transportation Plan each year. See the progress made throughout 2022. ​​

Speed management program and storymap

Why speed management?

Ann Arbor has a Vision Zero goal to eliminate fatalities and serious injuries resulting from traffic crashes by 2025. 

  • Speed is a major part of how severe and deadly a crash will be, therefore slowing vehicles down is an important strategy towards reaching Vision Zero.
  • Major streets are 25% of total streets in Ann Arbor and witness 89% of the severe and fatal traffic crashes.

What is the speed management program?

The speed management program will use a set of 22 speed m​anagement tools based on researched practices. The city will be drawing from these tools when redesigning major streets throughout Ann Arbor. The tools are based on researched practices from top national and state sources.

The storymap has an interactive map of Ann Arbor's major streets. Streets with the highest need for speed management appear in red. Clicking on a major street brings up information on the street's characteristics and which tools could considered for that street's future design. 

Focus groups

The next steps in the development of the Speed Management program will be focus group interviews.  

  • Postcards will be sent to randomly selected addresses across Ann Arbor during the month of May. Completing the survey does not guarantee a place in the focus group. 
  • After completing a short survey, focus group participants will be selected and notified via email or phone number. 
  • These 90-minute interviews will take place during the month of July and will be performed by Sam Schwartz.  ​

​Quick build​s

​​​​As part of Ann Arbor's Moving Together Toward Vision Zero Comp​rehensive Transportation Plan​, the city is undertaking several "quick build" ​projects to create safer streets much faster than typical processes allow. 

Survey - Share how these quick build projects are working for you. This quick survey takes only 3-4 minutes to complete and will help staff on future quick build installation​. ​

Vision Zero Implementation Subcommittee

The subcommittee held its first meeting February 2022 and ended June 2023. Please visit the subcom​mittee page for links and documents. ​​
