What is LTAP?
LTAP is the Local Technical Assistance Program. LTAP is part of the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), and was established in 1982. Beginning with 10 Centers throughout the United States, the LTAP network now has one Center in each state, one in Puerto Rico, and seven for Native American Tribal Governments. LTAP Centers are the way the FHWA helps local highway agencies in each state meet the challenge of maintaining and rehabilitating roads and bridges, learn about best practices and innovative technology to meet local needs.
The Cornell Local Roads Program (CLRP) is the LTAP Center for New York State. It is a partnership of the New York State Department of Transportation, the FHWA, and Cornell University. The CLRP offers technical assistance, training, and other services to local road agencies within New York State. When you ask the LTAP Center for help, you tap into the comprehensive network of Centers and state DOTs throughout the United States.
