Township Sign Safety Program
Each year, ODOT's Highway Safety Improvement Program (HSIP) provides $1 million dollars in funding to upgrade safety signage on Ohio's Township Roadways. Townships are invited to apply for the safety funding based on the following criteria:
- Ranked amoung the top townships with above average, systemwide crash rates based on their previous five years crash history, and
- Have not previously received a Township Sign Safety Grant under this program, or
- Have not been invited to apply at least twice previously for the Township Sign Safety Grant Program and failed to submit an application.
This program allows townships to request safety signage along with related posts and hardware, to upgrade existing or install additional safety signage in a systemic manner across the township's entire roadway system. The limit per request, per township, is $50,000 (fifty thousand dollars).
The application period for township-wide signage safety grant is currently closed. The application period for State Fiscal Year 2016 will open in late fall of 2014. Please check back then for more details or contact program manager, Victoria Beale, with any questions - firstname.lastname@example.org or 614-466-3129.
