Highway Safety Improvement Program
HSIP Implementation Plan (2022)
In April 2022, MnDOT was notified by Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) that the state had failed to meet or make significant progress toward 2020 calendar year targets. The HSIP Implementation Plan (PDF) report summarizes the state of the practice for traffic safety in Minnesota as well as outlines actions to be taken to make subsequent targets.
Solicitation for funding
The latest solicitation (September 2022) for Greater Minnesota local projects for the Highway Safety Improvement Program (HSIP) (SFY 2024-2027) is now open. Applications are due November 23, 2022.
Can local government get funding for low cost highway improvements?
The Federal government has set aside approximately $33 million (in 2018) for HSIP safety projects; 60% of these funds are set aside for local safety projects. Specific regulations must be followed to apply for the funds. See the Local HSIP Announcement for further details.
