NYSDOT Pedestrian Safety Action Plan (PSAP)

Local Call for Projects

Ulster County Executive and Chair of the Ulster County Transportation Council (UCTC) Mike Hein, in coordination with the New York State Department of Transportation (NYSDOT), is pleased to progress the local call for pedestrian safety projects included in the Statewide Pedestrian Safety Action Plan (PSAP) that was announced in June of 2016. The local call for pedestrian safety projects includes $40,000,000 in federal Highway Safety Improvement Program funds for systemic pedestrian safety projects on local and county urban roads and streets.

NYSDOT will host a webinar in late October or early November of 2017 to answer questions about the program and the application process. Additional information about the webinar, program guidance, how to apply, application forms and related materials will be available at

Applications must be submitted by March 09, 2018. Eligible projects must be on a public road, off the state touring route system and be on a local or county owned or maintained road.  All project locations must be on roads that are located within a designated 2010 federal adjusted urban area, which can be viewed online through the NYSDOT Functional Class Viewer or through project materials available on the NYSDOT PSAP webpage.
