Safe Streets and Roads for All Action Plan
Ensuring safe, accessible, and desirable transportation in Central Indiana is central to the IMPO's mission. In May 2022 the U.S. Department of Transportation (USDOT) published a notice of funding opportunity for the Safe Streets and Roads for All (SS4A) Discretionary Grant. This program provides funding for both planning and implementation (construction) of infrastructure and initiatives designed to prevent death and serious injury on roads and streets. A Safety Action Plan which meets the specified program criteria is required before implementation grants can be pursued.
Securing additional funding for members is one of the IMPO’s core pillars – in order to facilitate IMPO members’ ability to apply for the implementation grants the IMPO is pursuing a collective Action Plan for the Central Indiana planning region. The compilation and completion of this Action Plan will enable all IMPO members to pursue SS4A implementation grants by the September 15, 2022 deadline. The regional safety action plan will consist of several components including goal setting, safety analysis, public engagement, equity analysis, policy and process proposals, and progress reporting.
Want to get involved? Take our public survey. The goal of this survey is to better understand residents’ feelings and concerns about road safety and use that information to inform future changes in the transportation network.
