Bike/ped pathways, trails eligible
The New York State Department of Transportation (NYSDOT) has issued a solicitation for safety projects (for all transportation modes) to be funded through the Highway Safety Improvement Program (HSIP). Approximately $60-80 M in HSIP funds will be available to carry out highway safety improvement projects on any public road or publically owned bicycle or pedestrian pathway or trail. Projects must be completed between October 1, 2014 and September 30, 2017. This is funding that your local government could use for Complete Streets implementation or improvements on pathways and trails. For more information, contact your local Metropolitan Planning Organization of NYSDOT region.
