Urban SDK Partners With Kirkwood

Urban SDK, the nation's leading traffic management software, is excited to announce its partnership with the City of Kirkwood, Missouri. This strategic collaboration marks the next step in Kirkwood's commitment to enhancing road safety and improving the overall quality of life for residents.

Kirkwood officials proudly bill their city as a "walkable, bike-able community, where pedestrian safety takes priority." In 2022, the city committed to Vision Zero — the nationwide pledge to reduce traffic deaths to zero; in 2023 it was awarded a $480,000 Safe Streets for All (SS4A) Grant to advance its Vision Zero program.  

The city's partnership with Urban SDK is the next step in ensuring road safety for all members of the community. Officials will be able to view traffic speeds on all local roads to quickly address citizen concerns and pinpoint high-incident networks.

"It has been such a pleasure working with Chris and the City of Kirkwood," said Urban SDK's Mason Yost. "We are very excited to have Kirkwood join our program as they have shown nothing but attentiveness to improving transportation safety for all residents. [We're] looking forward to Urban SDK helping them respond to local speeding issues more efficiently."

Urban SDK received unanimous approval from Kirkwood's city council, which immediately saw the value to faster reporting on the state of roadways. With the partnership, Kirkwood joins 100+ organizations nationwide using Urban SDK to ensure safer, more accessible roads.
