16. Abstract

The Highway Safety Improvement Program (HSIP) is a core Federal-aid highway program with the primary purpose of achieving a significant reduction in fatalities and serious injuries on all public roads. Many states and local agencies are successfully implementing innovative approaches to HSIP planning, implementation, and evaluation. The HSIP Noteworthy Practices Series presents case studies of these successful practices organized by specific HSIP topics, including:

  • HSIP Project Identification;
  • HSIP Project Evaluation;
  • Safety Data Collection, Analysis, and Sharing;
  • SHSP Stakeholder Involvement;
  • Revisiting SHSP Emphasis Areas; and
  • Use of the HSIP Flexible Funding Provision.

Each series includes an introduction to the topic and a collection of noteworthy practices, which provide summaries of each practice, key accomplishments, results, and contact information for those interested in learning more.
