High Injury Network

Louisville is a Vision Zero city, with a vision of eliminating roadway deaths on surface streets by 2050. Vision Zero Louisville is the city's transportation safety initiative, which is managed by Louisville Metro Public Works, in partnership with the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet (KYTC). Vision Zero Louisville follows the U.S. Department of Transportation-recommended Safe System Approach, which identifies five complementary pillars to aid in eliminating fatal and serious injury crashes within the transportation system. The Safer Roads pillar involves designing roadway environments to mitigate human mistakes and account for injury tolerances, to encourage safer behaviors, and to facilitate safe travel by the most vulnerable users.

A High Injury Network is a data-driven approach which identifies non-interstate roadway segments that account for a disproportionate amount of a community's fatal and serious injury crashes. Developing a High Injury Network is a national best practice among Vision Zero communities. The High Injury Network allows communities to focus limited resources on improving safety along those high priority, dangerous corridors. Louisville’s roads witness more than one fatal and suspected serious injury crash daily, spread across 3,170 miles of non-interstate routes. The High Injury Network provides a data-driven and focused list of corridors where a majority of these fatal and suspected serious injury crashes are occurring. The routes identified in Louisville's High Injury Network will guide the city's Safer Roads strategy, in support of Louisville's vision to eliminate roadway deaths on surface streets by 2050. 

Louisville's High Injury Network is 5% of non-interstate miles (152), but 55% of non-interstate fatal and suspected serious injury crashes (1,213).
