Local Safety Training Opportunities

To compete for safety funding effectively and have the greatest opportunity for improving the safety of their local road networks, it is essential for local agencies to analyze their roadway networks, identify their safety needs and possible project candidates, and develop good HSIP applications. To assist local agencies’ efforts, Caltrans and its partners host the following trainings:
