Abstract With 100 counties and more than 800 cities, towns, and township governments in North Carolina, there is a tremendous need to disseminate road safety information at the local level. For safety gains to be made in NC communities there needs to be both a top-down and bottom-up approach. In other words, agencies such as the NCDOT routinely plan and provide for roadway improvements, but local government and safety leaders need to be informed about their safety problems and the full array of potential solutions so as to be participants in road safety decisions that impact their community. The lack of access and knowledge of the information needed to proactively address road safety issues is a key issue for improving road safety at the local level. One objective of this effort was to produce templates of comprehensive safety document (CSD) for NCDOT to enable the department to tailor solutions for a community's specific highway safety issues. Templates were developed for Randolph county and Kinston. This project also developed a website to provide communities with guidance and a list of tools and resources for applicable education, enforcement, and engineering countermeasures that could be applied to address the community's issues. Finally, the project also developed a marketing plan for the CSD that can be used by NCDOT.
