Tribal Transportation Safety Assessment (TTSA) State Planning Research (SPR)
UC Berkeley SafeTREC conducted Tribal Transportation Safety Assessments (TTSA) for seven (7) California Native American Tribes. The Tribal Transportation Safety Assessment (TTSA) - State Planning Research (SPR) was funded by the California Department of Transportation (Caltrans), Division of Transportation Planning (DOTP), and the Native American Liaison Branch (NALB). The TTSA provided California Native American Tribal Governments with expert, focused, and independent Tribal Transportation Safety Assessments (TTSAs). The goal of the TSSA-SPR project was to reduce injuries and fatalities on all roadways that serve California Native American reservations and Rancherias, as well as roadways accessing their lands, by conducting a TTSA for selected tribal governments.
Each assessment consisted of a two-day site visit, including a public participation meeting and field audit conducted by SafeTREC experts. A technical report, consisting of an analysis and summary of findings and possible suggestions for improvements, and potential sources of funding considered for specific improvements, was submitted to each tribe.
The technical assistance services and reports provided by this project can help Indian tribes identify potential sources of funding to make the improvements suggested in their reports and can help provide the justifications to use in future grant applications.
