The ODOT Highway Safety Improvement Program (HSIP) supports highway safety treatments or corrective activity designed to alleviate a safety problem or a potentially hazardous situation. HSIP Project types include, but are not limited to: signalization, turn lanes, pavement markings, traffic signs, traffic lights, guardrails, impact attenuators, concrete barrier, pedestrian signals or crosswalks, bike lanes, road diets and break away utility poles.
In Ohio, priority will be given to those projects with recommended activities/countermeasures that improve safety at roadway locations with a high frequency and/or severity of crashes. Prioritization is based on a variety of criteria including: Expected Crash Frequency; Potential for Safety Improvement; Relative Severity Index; Equivalent Property Damage Only; Volume to Capacity Ratio; Benefit to Cost Ratio; and Percentage of Safety Funding Requesting.
None is available.
Applications must be submitted in advance through the ODOT districts and signed off by the respective District Safety Review Team. An interactive map of ODOT Districts and contacts may be viewed at: http://www.dot.state.oh.us/districts/Pages/default.aspx.
