Highway Safety Engineering uses crash data to research, design and implement projects that save lives and reduce the number of crashes on Texas roadways. Key initiatives include the Strategic Highway Safety Plan (SHSP), Highway Safety Improvement Program (HSIP) and the Systemic Widening Program (SSWP). The materials listed below support these initiatives.
The Traffic Safety Division is developing process improvements to the HSIP program in lieu of a 2019 program call. Look for updates in summer 2019.
