Call For Projects For Safety Improvements

For all the cities, counties and tribes SRTC works with, the Washington State Department of Transportation on Friday issued a “call for projects” for their Innovative Safety program that is aimed at reducing fatal and serious injury crashes that occur on local roadways using innovative and effective technologies. Eligible projects must address locations and portions of the system with a history of fatal and serious injury crashes.

Detailed information about the funding program, available resources, and the application process is available on WSDOT’s website at http://www.wsdot.wa.gov/LocalPrograms/Traffic/2016InnovativeSafetyProgram.htm. Applications are due to WSDOT by July 31, 2016.

If you have any questions, please contact Matthew Enders at EndersM@wsdot.wa.gov, or by phone at 360.705.6907.
