The Nashville Department of Transportation and Multimodal Infrastructure and Mayor John Cooper have released for public review the first draft of the Nashville Vision Zero Action Plan, a research-based strategy to end all traffic-related deaths and severe injuries. The plan will serve as a guiding framework to make the city’s streets safer for all roadway users—pedestrians, bicyclists and motorists—and achieve a goal of zero preventable roadway deaths.
The aspirations of Vision Zero align closely with MoveVU, Vanderbilt’s strategic transportation and mobility plan. Improving pedestrian safety, connectivity and transportation in and around the Vanderbilt campus is key to the FutureVU vision. MoveVU leaders Erin Hafkenschiel, executive director of mobility, and Michael Briggs, assistant director of mobility, have served on the Vision Zero Task Force to guide the plan.
Vanderbilt community members are encouraged to review the plan and submit feedback by emailing VisionZero@nashville.gov. Additionally, a virtual public meeting will be held on Jan. 26 at noon. Learn more about Vision Zero here.
