Guidance for Developing Highway Safety Plans

HSP Guidance cover
Resource Type

INTERIM FY 2017 Version

Updated March 2016

DISCLAIMER: GHSA guidance documents have not been updated to include the requirements in the IFR published in the Federal Register on May 23, 2016, which implement the FAST Act.

This document is intended to help State Highway Safety Offices craft their federally required annual Highway Safety Plans (HSPs).

It was most recently revised in March 2016. References have been added to address the new requirements in the FAST Act, the latest federal transportation authorization legislation. The yellow highlighted sections are those which contain additions or modifications from the previous revision in April 2015. An additional update will become necessary when NHTSA issues the accompanying regulations for implementation of the FAST Act, expected later in 2016.

States are encouraged to thoroughly read both the NHTSA HSP Content Review Guide, when it becomes available, and this GHSA HSP Guidance during the preparation of their FY 2017 HSP.
