Michigan's Local Technical Assistance Program (LTAP) serves state, county, and municipal transportation personnel. We bridge the gap between research and practice by conducting training sessions, providing engineering technical assistance, and serving as a clearinghouse for information related to state-of-the-art technology in the construction and maintenance of roads, bridges, and other transportation infrastructure.
