The Challenge
The City of Oakland Department of Transportation (OakDOT) receives more traffic safety improvement requests than they have resources to implement each year. OakDOT needed a way to effectively prioritize service requests.
The Customer

City of Oakland Department of Transportation (OakDOT)

About The Customer
The customer is the City of Oakland Department of Transportation (OakDOT). They are responsible for managing traffic safety improvement requests and ensuring equitable services in the community.
The Solution
OakDOT implemented an integrated solution for prioritizing traffic safety requests in areas of need. They created a data-driven prioritization model that leverages Cityworks and ArcGIS to assign a priority score to each street segment in the community. The prioritization scores are based on three core variables: traffic collision history, land use proximity, and equity. City employees can easily filter, organize, and report on work activities by their assigned prioritization scores.
Quantitative Benefit
  • The quantitative benefit is that OakDOT can optimize and streamline traffic infrastructure updates in the community. By using valuable data to inform their service strategy, they can make the most of their limited resources and execute projects that bring the highest equitable return. This approach promotes equity in the community and helps reduce traffic-related injuries and deaths.
