The MAG Roadway Safety Program (RSP), proposed by MAG to supplement the state’s Highway Safety Improvement Program (HSIP) program, assists with providing additional funding in the short term. MAG will facilitate a Highway User Revenue Fund (HURF) swap and regional safety program that can improve the safety conditions of our roadways in all areas, from rural to dense urban. MAG developed this program to address these critical regional funding needs in the near term.

The MAG region will be developing the Strategic Transportation Safety Plan that also will provide suggested long-term safety programming. This will be included in a new Regional Transportation Plan/regional funding plan expected to be approved before December, 2024. MAG member agencies support transportation system safety through enactment of transportation projects in the region. With this two-phased approach, the region will augment and assist the state in reducing traffic fatalities and serious injuries on public roads in the region.

The amount of RSP funds to be made available under a competitive call for projects process will be approximately $2 million in each fiscal year through 2024. Calls for projects will be issued on an annual basis in August. The Transportation Safety Committee will provide oversight to recommending a list of projects to be funded.
