for Local Roadways in Tampa Bay

Local HSIP Projects Cycle:


      The Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century Act (MAP-21) went into effect on October 1, 2012. It continued the Highway Safety Improvement Program (HSIP) as a core Federal-aid program. The goal of the program is to achieve a significant reduction in traffic fatalities and serious injuries on all public roads, including non-State-owned public roads and roads on tribal lands.

The following information is intended for local government staff to learn more about federally-funded safety projects on local roads in Tampa Bay.

      Under the Highway Improvement Safety Program, the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) District 7 Safety Office has made a commitment to allocating federal safety funds to the local agency safety projects focused on reducing severe injury (fatal and incapacitating injury) crashes.  Funding is allocated to local governments through a competitive project-based application process. The Annual District 7 Safety Summit provides local agencies in Tampa Bay with resources and to develop projects and apply for federal safety funding through a formal process designed to identify and deliver safety improvements with the greatest benefit to the public.
