Strategic Highway Safety Plan

The Massachusetts SHSP identifies the state's safety goals, objectives, and emphasis areas

A Strategic Highway Safety Plan (SHSP) identifies key safety needs and helps direct funding to improvements that reduce highway fatalities and serious injuries on all public roads.

MassDOT developed the Massachusetts SHSP in a cooperative process with Federal, State, local, private, and public sector safety stakeholders. The SHSP is a data-driven, strategic plan that integrates the four E's: engineering, education, enforcement and emergency medical services (EMS).

Massachusetts updated the Plan in 2013 and completed a second revision in December 2018 and is now actively implementing the various strategies. The status of implementation is being documented in annual Action Plan Update reports which represent a snapshot of progress at the time.
