Safety Circuit Rider Program

Grants and Contracts Details

Description

The Kentucky Transportation Center (KTC) Technology Transfer Program was chosen to administer a pilot Safety Circuit Rider Program funded by the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) Office of Highway Safety in 2005. The objective of the program was to provide technical assistance to local agencies for improving the safety of rural, low-volume roads through the implementation of low-cost infrastructure improvements. The Safety Circuit Rider Program specifically targeted methods to reduce roadway departure crashes, reduce crashes at intersections, and improve pedestrian safety. Three other states also received grants to begin similar programs through their Local Technical Assistance Programs (LTAPs). Kentucky’s Program gained national recognition for excellence, and the FHWA continued funding for an additional year. After the FHWA funding ended, funding has been provided by the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet. KTC asks that the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet fund the Safety Circuit Rider Program for an additional two years.
