Action Plan & Progress Reports

An Action Plan with a clear timeframe for reaching program goals/milestones is the backbone of the Vision Zero program. The County’s Vision Zero Action Plan details the County’s commitment to achieving the objectives defined in the County’s Vision Zero resolution. It articulates the values, goals, actions and performance measures that guide Vision Zero actions and evaluate the County’s progress toward eliminating traffic fatalities and serious injuries.

Our first five-year Action Plan presents a clear framework toward reaching our Vision Zero program goals. This Action Plan identifies key safety target areas, actions that improve safety in each target area, and measures for tracking our progress towards eliminating severe and fatal transportation injuries in Arlington County by 2030.

Annual Vision Zero Cycle

The graphic below illustrates the updated typical yearly cycle for implementation of, and reporting on, Arlington’s Vision Zero program. 

  • Typically late fall through early spring, transportation staff focus on planning and programming. Then from spring through fall, the County focuses on implementation of transportation projects through construction and repaving. 
  • The County releases the annual Vision Zero report covering activities and metrics from the previous calendar year in April, along with an open house and safety feedback engagement to learn about experiences and needs from the community. 
  • The County releases the mid-year Vision Zero report covering activities within the calendar year to-date in October, along with the annual meeting of the Vision Zero External Stakeholders Group, who provide feedback and help steer the program.
  • Programmatic safety work, such as the crash hot spots program, High-Injury Network safety audits, critical crash reviews, community request response, collaboration, and communication occur year-round. 
  • The High-Injury Network is updated every three years. Hot Spots are identified every two years.
