The Bipartisan Infrastructure Law (BIL) created the Safe Streets and Roads for All (SS4A) Program with a focus on preventing fatalities and serious injuries on America’s roadways. The BIL commits large amounts of federal funding for this purpose, and communities seeking these funds must have a Safety Action Plan.  Significant funding in the SS4A program is set aside for the development of these action plans. AMATS has chosen to create a SS4A action plan for the region, without requesting this funding, to better position the region to apply for and receive the implementation dollars associated with SS4A.

In addition to documenting the characteristics of crashes within the AMATS planning area, one of the key components of a SS4A Action Plan is the establishment of a High Injury Network (HIN). A HIN is simply the network showing the region’s fatal and serious injury (FSI) crashes. Establishing the HIN allows for additional analysis on where crashes occurred and can also provide much more detailed information on particular crash events.
