Safety Program

ODOT’s Highway Safety Program sets aside $2M annually to support bicycle and pedestrian-related funding requests. This money will likely flow from the Active Transportation Plan and these funds will be in addition to the requests that ODOT receives for bike/ped infrastructure included in road safety improvements. It also 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, system wide crash rates based on their previous five years crash history, and Have not previously received a Township Sign Safety Grant under this program.
