In 2017, the Connecticut Department of Transportation (CTDOT) published the Connecticut Strategic Highway Safety Plan (SHSP) to guide the State in reducing injuries and fatalities along Connecticut roadways. This Regional Transportation Safety Plan (RTSP) is in congruence with the Connecticut SHSP. It will serve as a road map and strategy to help the Western Connecticut Region and its 18 municipalities collaborate with the State in reducing injury and fatal crashes. It will also serve to increase safety awareness and allow the member towns, cities, and the region to focus on their transportation safety issues.
The Section 5310 program provides Federal funding for capital expenses (up to 80% of total project cost) and operating expenses (up to 50% of total project cost) to improve mobility for seniors and individuals with disabilities by removing barriers to transportation service and expanding transportation mobility options.
