Local agency traffic and safety

A crosswalk and median in Port Townsend, Washington. Traffic Services' goal is to advance projects to improve communities in Washington state. We provide technical assistance to local jurisdictions and link them up with training at the planning, project development, design, construction, maintenance, and operations levels. We also provide federal safety funding to jurisdictions to reduce fatal and serious crashes. Further, we promote and facilitate information sharing between jurisdictions, and serve as a liaison between agencies and governments, citizens, WSDOT, and the Federal Highway Administration.

Funding: Highway Safety Improvement Program (HSIP)
