Highway Safety Improvement Program (HSIP) Grant Cycle 10 Applications

At the September 17, 2020 BPAC meeting, OakDOT Staff Teresa Peterson and Charlie Ream presented the one systemic project and two corridor specific projects selected for HSIP Cycle 10 grant applications and solicit feedback on the project design. They requested letters of support from BPAC for each of the projects.

About the Highway Safety Improvement Program (HSIP)

  • The purpose of the HSIP is to achieve a significant reduction in traffic fatalities and serious injuries on all public roads.
  • Up to $10M in funds awarded per agency, with additional amounts granted via funding set-asides (guardrail upgrades, pedestrian crossing enhancements, edgeline installation).
  • HSIP awards are based on benefit-cost ratio (BCR) scores, which are determined by identifying specific safety problems along with their proposed countermeasures.
  • HSIP Cycle 10 deadline: October 15, 2020.

HSIP Cycle 10 Prioritization

  • Five years of severe and fatal crashes involving people walking & biking
  • Geographic Equity Tool
  • High Injury Networks
  • Previous HSIP 9 candidates
  • Intersection characteristics
  • Existing and planned capital projects
  • Aiming for BCR > 7.5
  • (Upcoming Local Road Safety Plan will facilitate HSIP Cycle 11 project selection)

The three proposed projects that OakDOT will submit to HSIP are:

  1. 14th Street (Mandela Parkway to Adeline Street)
  2. 98th Avenue (Edes Avenue to MacArthur Boulevard)
  3. Systemic application – 2-lane unsignalized intersections with pedestrian collisions

14th Street (Mandela Parkway to Adeline Street)

  • Adeline
    • Focus on left-turn collisions
    • Protected left-turn phases
    • Bike Plan calls for Class IV bike lanes on 14th Street
    • If more funding identified at later date, can become protected intersection
  • Poplar
    • Mark new crosswalk
    • Pedestrian Hybrid Beacon (PHB)
  • Magnolia
    • Add PHB to existing uncontrolled crosswalk
    • Side street crosswalks
  • Mandela
    • Eastbound LT phase
    • LPIs (leading pedestrian intervals)

98th Avenue (Edes Avenue to MacArthur Boulevard)

  • Signalized Intersections:
    • Birch, Plymouth, D St, Holly, B St, E St, Edes
    • Side street signal mast arms
    • LPIs
    • Ped countdown heads
  • Unsignalized Intersections
    • A St, Pearmain
    • Overhead RRFBs (rectangular rapid flash beacons)
  • Center Turn Lane Improvements (throughout)
    • Investigating options to install raised, rolled-curb elements in the center turning lane to prohibit/discourage passing and aggressive driving

Systemic – Small Intersection Safety Upgrades

  • Focused on collector streets, 2 lanes, unsignalized
  • RRFBs and raised crosswalks
  • Draft list of intersections:
    • Shattuck Ave and 56th St
    • Lincoln Ave and Delmer St
    • Alcatraz Ave and Dana St
