Highway Safety Improvement Program (HSIP)

HSIP Tunnel Vision graphicThe HSIP mission is to identify and fund highway safety projects that maximize lives saved and injuries eliminated per dollar spent.

Overview

Under the HSIP, DOT&PF Traffic and Safety personnel annually identify high accident locations on Alaska roads, evaluate corrective measures, fund the most cost-effective ones, and evaluate their effectiveness after projects are completed.

There are many competing needs and influences that vie for DOT&PF project funding through other programs. In contrast, HSIP funds are intended to be targeted single-mindedly at life-saving and injury reduction.
