Supplement to Phase 1 of the Alabama SHSP Update

In response to the latest federal transportation authorization, the Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century Act (Map-21), the Alabama Department of Transportation (ALDOT) is updating its Strategic Highway Safety Plan (SHSP). Purpose of the SHSP is to serve as the comprehensive safety program for all public roads in the State. It is produced in coordination with other State safety agencies, is consistent with other State safety plans, and provides the framework for reducing fatalities and serious injuries on the State's roadway network. It is proposed that a team comprising the University of Alabama (UA) and Cambridge Systematics (CS) conduct Phase 1 of Alabama SHSP update. The University Transportation Center for Alabama (UTCA) will lead the project with support from the Center for Advanced Public Safety (CAPS) at UA. Cambridge Systematics will provide technical support and strategic guidance over the course of Phase 1. The proposed project will add the Birmingham and Southwest Alabama Regions to Phase I of SHSP. By including the additional regions, the team will be able to develop a comprehensive understanding of the different demographic, socio-economic, topographical and road safety issues throughout the State. The objective of the proposed project is to produce two additional SHSPs for the new regions added herein.
