Purpose of the Program
Illinois’ HSIP is a core federal program (Section 148 of Title 23, United States Code) intended to produce a measurable and significant reduction in fatalities and serious injuries resulting from traffic related crashes on all public roads. HSIP is a data-driven, strategic approach program for infrastructure improvements administered by the Federal Highways Administration (FHWA). Emphasis is placed on performance.
HSIP funds may also be used for system-wide, systemic, safety improvements. These may include items such as signage, pavement markings, rumble strips, chevrons, guardrail improvements / upgrades, guardrail end terminal upgrades, etc.
The local HSIP process is announced through a Bureau of Local Roads and Streets Circular Letter. The solicitation announcement is normally done in the spring of the year with project awards in mid-summer.
