Earlier last month The Highway Safety Improvement Program Cycle 12 announced a call-for-projects. The Highway Safety Improvement Program (HSIP), is a federal-aid program geared at the reduction of traffic-related fatalities and/or serious injuries on all public roads and within our local communities. HSIP funding is accessible for new project improvements across any public road, highway, bicycle or pedestrian trail, or on tribal lands for general use of tribal members, that enhances the safety for its community members.

In order to qualify and apply for the local HSIP funds, please note an agency must have completed their Local Roadway Safety Plan (LRSP), a data driven template that offers a comprehensive approach to addressing road safety that is submitted to Caltrans Local Assistance.

At Harris & Associates, we are committed to creating safer communities and assisting local jurisdictions in mitigating fatalities and life-threatening injuries across California’s public roadways. Harris' Transportation Team is here to help and can submit HSIP Cycle 12 applications on our clients’ behalf. We have a track-record of helping cities with varied HSIP submittals, including:
