Roadside SHOPP Programs

Roadside Safety Improvement Program

Roadside Safety Improvement projects are an effective means to improve worker safety. These projects focus on minimizing the risk of worker exposure to traffic as determined by site specific factors including existing access, shoulder width, slope ratio, location of facilities, roadside paving, ADT, frequency and duration of exposure, and variety of maintenance crews in area.

Roadside Rehabilitation Program

Roadside rehabilitation provides for replacement and rehabilitation of existing vegetation damaged by extreme weather (drought or freezing conditions), acts of nature, or deterioration in order to integrate the facility with the adjacent community and surrounding environs.
