Workforce Development Lifecycle for Road and Bridge Agencies

The Workforce Development Lifecycle for Road and Bridge Agencies project proposes a multi-faceted approach to educate Texas Local Public Agencies (LPAs) about the Federal Highway Administration's (FHWA's) Every Day Counts, Round 6 and Round 7 Strategic Workforce Development innovation, implementation methods, and valuable resources as well as encourage the adoption and implementation of recommended best practices at the local level. LPAs across the state are faced with the critical challenge of attracting and retaining Road and Bridge (R&B) personnel to maintain Texas local roadways. The proposed project builds on the successful FY21 Texas Local Technical Assistance Program (TxLTAP) Strategic Workforce Development, Texas State Transportation Innovation Council (TxSTIC) Incentive Program, project entitled Texas Transportation Workforce Development for Cities and Counties that reached 25 Texas counties who had not previously utilized TxLTAP's services. The project achieved an 87% statewide adoption rate of deliverables, products, and services.
