Transportation Infrastructure Safety Improvement Program (TISIP)

In the near future, Dauphin County will begin accepting applications to the brand new Transportation Infrastructure Safety Improvement Program grant program.
The Dauphin County “Transportation Infrastructure Safety Improvement Program” (TISIP) will provide grants for up to 75% of the total project costs, focused on transportation safety improvement projects of municipally owned transportation infrastructure to encourage economic development and ensure that a safe and reliable system of transportation is available to the residents of Dauphin County.
The program is intended to provide financial grant assistance to Dauphin County municipalities in order to improve the safety of public transportation assets with documented accident history trends and/or substandard features with respect to current transportation design criteria. The program will be administered by the Dauphin County Department of Community and Economic Development Corporation ("DCEDC").
         Eligible TISIP projects must be owned and maintained by a Dauphin County municipality.

  • Rehabilitation or replacement of substandard bridges or culverts in poor condition.
  • Correction of substandard stopping or turning sight distance
  • Correction of substandard horizontal roadway curves
