Systemic Safety Analysis Report Program (SSARP)

The City of Arroyo Grande has successfully competed for funding from the Caltrans Systemic Safety Analysis Report Program (SSARP). The SSARP is a proactive safety approach that focuses on evaluating an entire roadway network using a defined set of criteria. It looks at crash history on an aggregate basis to identify high-risk roadway characteristics, rather than looking at high-collision concentration locations through site analysis. The goal of the SSARP is to help local agencies identify safety projects to submit for Highway Safety Improvement Program (HSIP) funding consideration. It is anticipated that documented results from the SSAR will identify high benefit-cost ratio safety projects that have been found in the past to be strong HSIP candidates.
