Kentucky LTAP Awarded Accelerating Safety Activities Program Funds
Accelerating Safety Activities Program (ASAP) is designed to help Safety Focus States promote safety innovations.  The Federal Highway Administration's Office of Safety reviewed and evaluated applications for the program and awarded funds for two Kentucky LTAP projects: Traffic and Safety Academy, and Horizontal Curve Alignment Training.  

The Traffic and Safety Academy is designed to offer local governments training to reduce roadway departure and pedestrian fatalities.  

Horizontal Curve Alignment Training will train local transportation employees to understand the importance of proper horizontal alignment signing, utilize the current technology and record the data so that it is uniform across the state.  

Thanks to the funds provided through the ASAP grant, local governments can attend either training at no cost.  

Additional information, including training dates and locations, will be made available in the coming weeks.
