Alaska Strategic Highway Safety Plan
Alaska’s Strategic Highway Safety Plan (SHSP) is being updated by Federal, state, local, and tribal safety partners and public citizens in 2011.
The SHSP update process provides stakeholders the opportunity, using a data-driven approach, to evaluate the progress of emphasis areas and strategies identified in the 2007 SHSP. Based on an analysis of crash, program and other data, in combination with a review of new research, new emphasis areas and strategies may be recommended or existing emphasis areas or strategies may be modified or removed.
