 Strategic Highway Safety Plan (SHSP) Evaluation Process Model

Maine was one of 6 states interviewed by an FHWA panel to discuss SHSP practices and approaches. Lauren Stewart, Duane Brunell, Angie Byrne and Brian Lawrence participated in the interview process.  Some of our core themes were collaboration, communication, continuity and KISS (Keep It Simple, Successful). A summary of best practices and approaches will come out of this multi-state interview process.
