Highway Safety Improvement Program Reports
MAP-21 requires each State to submit a Highway Safety Improvement Program report that:
- Describes the progress being made to implement highway safety improvement projects;
- Assesses the effectiveness of those improvements; and
- Describes the extent to which the improvements have contributed to reducing fatalities and serious injuries on all public roads.
The HSIP MAP-21 Reporting Guidance provides information to States on the reporting frequency and schedule, content and structure of the report, and provisions related to the protection of data from discovery and admission into evidence. The HSIP online reporting tool is available to support the annual HSIP reporting process. In 2013, thirty-eight (38) states used the HSIP online reporting tool to satisfy the HSIP reporting requirements.
Each State’s HSIP report can be viewed by selecting the state name below. Any questions about individual State reports should be directed to the respective State DOT.
FHWA compiles the information collected in the HSIP reports and produces an HSIP National Summary Report. The HSIP National Summary Report provides aggregate information related to the States progress in implementing HSIP projects. Progress in implementing HSIP projects is described based on the amount of HSIP funds available and the number and general listing of projects initiated during the reporting period.
