Since the 1980′s, the 58 Centers that comprise the Federal Highway Administration‘s (FHWA) Local & Tribal Technical Assistance Programs (LTAP/TTAP) have provided information and training to local governments and agencies responsible for over three million miles of roads and over 600,000 bridges in the United States. The mission of LTAP/TTAP is to foster a safe, efficient, and environmentally sound surface transportation system by improving skills and increasing knowledge of the transportation workforce and decision makers. Under a contract awarded by FHWA, the ARTBA Transportation Development Foundation operates the LTAP/TTAP Clearinghouse, which acts as a central source of information for LTAP/TTAP centers, local officials and other industry stakeholders. The Clearinghouse assists in providing materials, information, online resources and personal technical assistance. Contact Carolyn Kramer for additional information.
