Highway Safety Improvement Program

The goal of the federally funded Highway Safety Improvement Program (HSIP) as authorized in the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs (IIJA) Act is to achieve a significant reduction in traffic fatalities and serious injuries on all public roads, including non-State-owned public roads and roads on tribal lands.



The HSIP requires a data-driven, strategic approach to improving highway safety on all public roads that focuses on performance.  New Mexico DOT’s HSIP is guided by the Strategic Highway Safety Plan (SHSP), a statewide, comprehensive effort to reduce fatalities and incapacitating (serious) injuries on New Mexico’s roadways for all modes and users (motorists, pedestrians, bicyclists, and other transportation users). The NM Strategic Highway Safety Plan is available to view/download as a PDF from the related links below.

For questions regarding eligibility and the application process please contact Jason Coffey or Alma Pacheco.
