Local Technical Assistance Program (LTAP)

[ About ] [ Current Class Schedule ] [ 2013 Activities ]

About

In an effort to transfer transportation technologies and procedures developed at the state and federal level to local municipalities, PennDOT established the Local Technical Assistance Program (LTAP) as part of a national initiative established by the Federal Highway Administration.

SPC, as the region’s Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) and PennDOT planning partner, organizes the LTAP program in the ten-county region of Southwestern Pennsylvania.  This program’s mission is to share transportation knowledge, improve road maintenance and safety skills, and put research and new technology into practice at the local level.

This is accomplished through free training and technical assistance.  Trainings offered either as half-day or full-day courses are scheduled at sites throughout the region on a regular basis, and include such topics such as Winter Maintenance and Roadside Vegetation.  Customized workshops can be provided at the request of a municipality or a group of municipalities.

More information and descriptions for all available courses are available at www.ltap.state.pa.us.

For technical assistance, PennDOT’s LTAP engineers are available by phone, email, or in person to help municipalities troubleshoot specific maintenance and safety problems.  This service is provided by PennDOT at no cost.

2013 Activities

In 2013, SPC once again partnered with PennDOT to administer the region’s Local Technical Assistance Program (LTAP), which assists our local municipalities by offering training programs and technical assistance.

In 2013, SPC focused on reaching out to a more diverse group of municipalities by moving our course sites to some of our rural municipalities, where we were able to schedule 9 courses in 6 counties.  A total of 134 participants took advantage of the LTAP program this year, including several first-time attendees.  Course offerings covered a variety of topics that will allow municipal employees to do their jobs more safely and efficiently.
