Manual: Highway Safety Improvement Program Manual
Effective Date: February 27, 2015Anchor: #MLAITRTQ
The purpose of this manual revision is to:
- Remove information on the High Risk Rural Roads Program (HRRR) from Section 4 and throughout the manual. The passage of the Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century Act (MAP-21) established special rules for the HRRR, but removed the HRRR funding from the Highway Safety Improvement Program (HSIP).
- Add information on Hazard Elimination Program (HES) safety emphasis areas.�
- Update the HSIP Work Codes table that is linked to the manual.
- Perform minor edits for clarification and to improve accuracy throughout the manual.
Aside from the removal of the HRRR information and the addition and revision of the additional information outlined above, the contents of the Highway Safety Improvement Program Manual have not changed.Anchor: #ROAMAKDT
The revised Highway Safety Improvement Program Manual supersedes all prior versions of the Highway Safety Improvement Program Manual and the Hazard Elimination Program Manual, which the HSIP manual replaced in June of 2008.Anchor: #LNBOFXCK
