Highway Safety Improvement Program

The Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) established the Highway Safety Improvement Program (HSIP) to achieve a significant reduction in traffic fatalities and serious injuries on all public roads.

The HSIP emphasizes a data-driven, strategic approach to improving highway safety that focuses on results.

Under the enabling transportation legislation enacted in December 2015, Fixing America's Surface Transportation (FAST), New Jersey receives approximately $57 million annually for safety improvements.”

The HSIP requires a statewide strategic highway safety plan to set goals and prioritize safety investments. The HSIP also requires annual progress reporting to the FHWA.
