Nearly 60% of traffic deaths and serious injuries occur on just 6% of Houston’s streets. This is identified as the High Injury Network and will help the City start making safety improvements where severe crashes are highest.
Vision Zero Houston is a holistic approach to safer streets that supports community equity and improves the quality of life for all Houstonians. The Vision Zero Action Plan is an effort of collaboration and leadership in engineering, enforcement, education, evaluation, and equity for mobility improvements. The plan aims to provide guidance in street design by prioritizing safety and accessibility for people of all ages and abilities. Additionally, it is an implementation manual that instructs phasing, partnerships, and metrics.
Asakura Robinson collaborated with Core Design Studio to provide graphic services including project branding, report design, and map creation. The goal was to make the plan reader friendly and effectively instruct future implementation. The project was 5 months long and the final plan is now a city official document which will be utilized for future uses.
The final plan was launched in December 2020 by the City of Houston. View it here.
