Virginia Highway Safety Improvement Program (VHSIP)
About the VHSIP Program
The Virginia Highway Safety Improvement Program (VHSIP) is guided by our Strategic Highway Safety Plan and receives federal and state safety funding to implement safety improvements across the roadway network in Virginia. The VHSIP requires a data-driven, strategic approach to improving highway safety on all public roads that focuses on safety performance. VDOT advances highway safety improvement projects that have the greatest potential to reduce the State's roadway fatalities and serious injuries. This page is dedicated to VHSIP project identification and delivery and contains information on current safety initiatives, tools, and resources.
