The first priority listed in the St. Louis County Public Works Department mission statement is safety. St. Louis County believes that traffic-related deaths on St. Louis County roads are unacceptable. This belief has led St. Louis County to be an active supporter and participant in the Minnesota Toward Zero Deaths initiative. St. Louis County has begun applying the principles of data-driven safety analysis in both its traffic safety programs and roadway projects.
