High-Risk Rural Roads Program
The Safe, Accountable, Flexible, Efficient Transportation Equity Act: A Legacy for Users (SAFETEA-LU), established the Highway Safety Improvement Program (HSIP). A portion of the HSIP funds were allocated to the High-Risk Rural Roads (HRRR) Program. For Iowa, the HRRR Program provided approximately $1.15 million per year.
Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century (MAP-21) does not provide a direct allocation for HRRR. However, it is up to the states to decide if they would like to set aside HSIP funds for Local Public Agencies (LPA's). The Iowa DOT is currently discussing a proposal to set aside HSIP funds for counties. Please stay tuned for more information.
