2010 County Safety Program: Selected Projects

In 2010, all 39 counties in Washington State received an invitation to apply for projects funded through the County Safety Program. The goal of the program is to reduce run-off-the-road and intersection-related fatal and serious injury collisions on county roads using engineering countermeasures. 

The program allocates Highway Safety Improvement Program funds from Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century Act (MAP-21 (pdf 1.4 mb). MAP-21 is the federal legislation for highway and transit programs.

All 39 counties applied for and received funds in 2010, as shown below, totalling $45 million. To date, this has resulted in more than 100 projects. See our Find a Local Project feature for the current status of the projects. Projects range in cost from $500,000 to $2.5 million. Construction is in progress on most of the projects and most projects will be completed by fall 2014.

Please contact the Technical Services Manager for more information.
