In early 2022, the Washington State Department of Transportation (WSDOT) will issue a
call for projects for approximately $25 million of federal Highway Safety Improvement
Program (HSIP) funds. These federal funds are used by WSDOT to assist with their
City Safety Program. The stated purpose of the City Safety Program is to reduce fatal
and serious injury crashes on city and town streets using engineering

To be eligible to apply for this grant, local agencies are required to submit a Local
Road Safety Plan (LRSP) that addresses fatal and serious injury crashes and systemic
safety needs within their jurisdiction. A LRSP is a data-driven analysis and
prioritization of an agency's roadways for traffic safety. Using specific information
about the factors present at specific crash locations, the City must identify other
locations where those factors are present. They then must identify and prioritize
improvements/countermeasures/projects to address the highest priority locations. This
prioritized list of projects is included in the local road safety plan and a required part of
any. Future HSIP funding application.
