$24.4M in Federal Funding Awarded for 22 East Bay Traffic Safety Projects

$24.4 Million in federal funding has been awarded to 22 East Bay traffic safety projects, including protected bikeway upgrades in Richmond and Concord, trail crossing upgrades in Antioch, and more.

This funding is from a competitive grant program called the Highway Safety Improvement Program (HSIP), which is focused on addressing safety issues at high-crash locations. These awards will be combined with a smaller amount of local money to fully fund the projects and bring them to construction within the next several years.
