Safe Streets Arlington logo


Imagine a city where no one is severely or fatally harmed while travelling to work, school, and fun. The City of Arlington is working toward that goal by creating a transportation safety action plan, which is called Safe Streets Arlington. The plan will give the community a path forward to create a safe system for all roadway users through a comprehensive and data-driven approach.

Interactive Safety Dashboard

Use this tool to explore and visualize crash trends and locations within the City of Arlington, Texas using data between 2018 and 2022. The interactive maps provide different ways to explore the data. This dashboard was developed as a component of the Safe Streets Arlington program. It is a program that includes a collection of tools, policies, strategies, and infrastructure aimed at eliminating all roadway traffic deaths and injuries in Arlington. For the best performance and experience please use a laptop or desktop computer to view the dashboard. 


The project started in early 2024 and the process is expected to take approximately 1 year.

Stakeholder Committee

Safe Streets Arlington is being developed with regular input and participation from two stakeholder committees. The Internal Stakeholder Committee (ISC) will meet periodically and is made up of City of Arlington departments that are responsible for roadway safety including Transportation, Police and Public Works.  The External Stakeholder Committee (ESC) made up of representatives from a wide range of interests. The ESC will have representatives from state, county, and local levels of government, educational facilities, businesses, nonprofits, neighborhoods, and other interest groups. ESC meetings will be held virtually throughout the process to provide guidance and advice to inform the final plan and will meet on the following dates:

  • March 6th, 2024
  • May 15th, 2024
  • September 18th, 2024
