The Billings Community Transportation Safety Plan (CTSP) was developed to reduce roadway fatalities and serious injuries in the Billings Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) area. Developed following the same methodology as Montana's Comprehensive Highway Safety Plan (CHSP). The MPO's process, similar to the CHSP, used a data-driven approach to identify safety issues and determine areas in need of increased focus and strategies to reduce roadway fatalities and serious injuries. Development of the plan was led by an Advisory Committee consisting consisting of the Billings MPO, City of Billings, Yellowstone County, local safety partners, and MDT staff.
The vision and goal statement developed for the Billings CTSP were defined as shown on the right.
