The mission of Minnesota LTAP is to improve the skills and knowledge of local transportation agencies through training, technical assistance, and technology transfer. Ultimately, the goal of Minnesota LTAP is to foster a safe, efficient, and environmentally sound transportation system.
Launched in 1992, Minnesota LTAP conducts workshops and seminars, conferences, customized training, demonstrations, and distance learning. In addition, Minnesota LTAP publishes newsletters and maintains a Web site with extensive resources.
Minnesota LTAP is part of the National Local Technical Assistance Program (NLTAP), which was formed in 1982 by the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA). NLTAP consists of a network of centers nationwide—one in each state and Puerto Rico—as well as several Tribal Technical Assistance Programs, or TTAPs. In addition, there are six centers in Mexico.
Cities, counties, and townships maintain more than 3 million miles of road and 301,000 bridges in the United States. Keeping them safe and navigable requires a skilled and knowledgeable workforce. The LTAP network helps meet this crucial need.
