Highway Safety Improvement Program (HSIP) Project Solicitation - Submission Deadline: September 23, 2016

CDTC is soliciting for Highway Safety Improvement Program (HSIP) Projects for its 2016-2021 Transportation Improvement Program (TIP).

The HSIP program has a local match requirement of 10% for most project types and there is no minimum or maximum limit on the project cost. Projects will be programmed anytime in the first four years of the TIP.
