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 among 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.

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.  It will open again in winter of 2015 - 2016.  If your township is eligible to apply, you will be contacted by our office.

Please contact program manager, Victoria Beale, with any questions - victoria.beale@dot.ohio.gov or 614-466-3129.

NOTE:  Here is a guidance document for fiscal officers on how to properly record the grant within your Township's Finances:  click here to download the guidance document.
