Highway Safety Improvement Program

Greater Minnesota (state projects)

Scoring criteria for the Highway Safety Improvement Program in Greater Minnesota. A total of 100 points is available spread equally between five criteria: location screening, coverage, expected impact, planning, and alignment with program goals.

The Highway Safety Improvement Program (HSIP) funds cost effective construction projects that reduce fatalities and serious injuries on all public roads. In Greater Minnesota, MnDOT administers two HSIP programs: one focused on safety improvements to local roads and a second focused on safety improvements to state highways. The majority (60 percent) of HSIP funding goes to local roads. This page only applies to the state highway program.

Project proposals are solicited from MnDOT districts in two categories: proactive/systemic projects that address known risk factors and reactive projects that address a sustained crash location. Most projects are originally identified in a district or county safety plan or an analysis of fatal and serious injury crashes on the state highway network.
