Appendix B: Stakeholder Feedback Questions

Status of HRRRP

1. Thus far, your State has obligated $X in HRRR funds. Does your State currently have an active HRRR program?

a. If no, why not?

b. If yes, how much money do you expect to obligate? What noteworthy practices has your State implemented that may be useful to other States? Are any of the above documented, and if so, where?

Crash Data

2. Does your State have a comprehensive roadway and crash data system that is used to identify the eligible roadway segments for HRRRP?

a. If no, what data is used to identify eligible locations?

Methodology for Determining HRRR Locations

3. What is your process for determining HRRR locations and projects? Are local roads (non-State) a part of your HRRRP?

4. How do you engage local stakeholders in determining eligible HRRR locations and projects for your State?

5. Do they use a different methodology to determine eligible locations and projects on locally owned and operated rural roads?

Types of Projects

6. What process do you use to select HRRR projects from among the eligible locations and segments?

7. What types of "construction and operational improvements" are included in your HRRR projects?

8. How are you mixing projects to maximize the availability of the funds in your State? For example, proceeding with a group of low cost projects, or projects with similar countermeasures.

Obligating Funds

9. How are HRRRP funds obligated for identified eligible projects?

a. Is the process for obligating funds a deterrent to prospective project owners, local or State? How is this overcome?

10. What other funding sources are available from which HRRR eligible projects are implemented?

Future Needs
