Seventy-four tribes were part of a $9 million award this week that will support 77 road safety projects in 22 states. The funds, which come from the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA)’s Tribal Transportation Program Safety Fund (TTPSF) are dedicated to improving transportation safety on tribal lands that are statistically some of the most hazardous in the nation because of poor physical condition and other factors. Congress created TTPSF in 2013 in the Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century (MAP-21) Act to improve highway safety on tribal roads and other transportation facilities.
