Safe Routes to Public Places Program (SRTPPP)

SRTPPP is part of the overall Highway Safety Improvement Program (HSIP) and falls under the umbrella of the Louisiana Strategic Highway Safety Plan (SHSP). The vision for the SHSP is Destination Zero Deaths and the HSIP is the core federal-aid program that aims to implement the SHSP's mission to achieve a significant reduction in fatalities and serious injuries on all public roads. To address the need to reduce pedestrian and bicyclist fatalities and injuries, HSIP funds are eligible to be spent on projects to improve safety for pedestrians and bicyclists on all public roads (state-owned and locally-owned).


Federal funds for the project are provided for 100% of project costs with no required local match within the limits of the DOTD's project funding commitment and eligibility requirements.


Any public agency is eligible to submit a project application.

Public agencies may apply to fund projects for the purpose of facilitating the development and implementation of projects that will improve safety for pedestrians, bicyclists, and transit users of all ages and abilities.

Eligible projects include improving pedestrian and bicycle facilities to schools, libraries, governmental buildings, hospitals, transit facilities, public parks, and other public places.

All public roads, state and locally-owned, are eligible under the SRTPPP.
