Texas Local Technical Assistance Program (LTAP)

The Local Technical Assistance Program (LTAP) is a nationwide effort financed by the Federal Highway Administration and individual state departments of transportation. Its purpose is to translate into understandable terms the best available technology and practices for roadways, bridges, bicycle and pedestrian facilities, and public transportation for city and county roadway and transportation personnel. The Texas Local Technical Assistance Program (TxLTAP) operated by the Researchers and is sponsored by the TxDOT and the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA). TxLTAP is focused on preserving and enhancing the local road system by delivering quality training and technical assistance to local city and county road agencies in Texas. The training provided through this program will increase the performance of the transportation workers in Texas by ensuring they conduct their duties in a safe, efficient, environmentally sound and cost-effective manner. This program will also allow city and county agencies to maximize benefits from their often limited fiscal and staffing resources. Through training geared to local government circumstances, customized technical assistance, advice provided at events, and a library of resources, TxLTAP provides relevant and impactful information focused on road and bridge/culvert maintenance, the use of traffic control devices, and other techniques to promote traffic safety.
