Transportation planning and project development present opportunities to use prioritization criteria that incorporate health considerations as well as increase collaboration between health and transportation agencies during the process. The 2020 update of Virginia's Pedestrian Safety Action Plan includes a systemic pedestrian safety analysis to identify priority corridors for improving pedestrian safety. VDOT collaborated with the state's Department of Public Health to incorporate measures from VDPH's Health Opportunities Index as a component of this analysis.
