Highway Safety Improvement Program (HSIP)
The new federal surface transportation act, “Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century” (MAP-21), was signed into law on July 6, 2012. Under MAP-21, the Highway Safety Improvement Program (HSIP) remains as one of the core federal-aid programs. The High Risk Rural Roads (HR3) Program is part of the HSIP Program in MAP-21, not a set-aside as in the previous federal surface transportation act.
On November 14, 2013, Caltrans approved the list of Cycle 6 projects to receive HSIP funding. A total of 389 applications were received during Cycle 6 from local agencies throughout the State. Of which, 231 projects have been funded, totaling approximately $150 million in federal HSIP funds. All applications competed funding based on their Benefit Cost Ratio. A complete list of the approved projects is available in the first link below.
More information regarding the HSIP Program is available through the left navigation bar.
The information and links on this page are specific to safety improvements implemented by local agencies. For information on the Caltrans-managed state highway system HSIP program, please contact the Caltrans Traffic Safety Branch or your Local Caltrans Office.
