Local Highway Safety Improvement Program (LSHIP) FY21 Grant Application (ACTION ITEM) - Alisa Anderson
The Highway Safety Improvement Program (HSIP) is a federally funded program aimed at reducing Fatal and Serious Injury crashes on the roadway systems. Local Highway Jurisdictions (LHJs) receive approximately $8.5 million of the state HSIP funds through the Local Highway Safety Improvement Program (LHSIP), a program administered through the Local Highway Technical Assistance Council (LHTAC). LHJs, such as the City of Moscow, with a Fatal and/or Serious (Type A) crash from 2013 - 2017 are eligible for the program. This federally funded program requires a local match not to exceed 7.34%.
In review and analysis of the citywide crash and accident data for 2013 - 2017, staff has identified a project located on Public Avenue designed to address the high rate of injury crashes and a fatality in this corridor. The project will provide systemic improvements on Public Avenue to extend 2,200 feet from Polk Street to Orchard Avenue. This proposed project will include widening of both lanes from approximately 12 feet with minimal shoulder and adjacent ditch to a full road cross section that includes a 17 foot travel lane (12 feet vehicle and 5 foot bicycle), 5 foot green strip, and 5 foot sidewalk. The project will include the installation of a storm sewer pipe to underground drainage areas that are currently located in roadside ditches, wider asphalt lanes, curb and gutter, green strip, and sidewalk. Additional work may include minor utility adjustments and retaining wall installation where necessary. Total project costs are estimated not exceed to $1,850,000 requesting $1,714,000 in federal funding with a local match of 7.34% not to exceed $136,000.
