The Michigan Local Technical Assistance Program (LTAP) serves state, county, and municipal transportation personnel. Its mission is to bridge the gap between research and practice by conducting training sessions, providing engineering technical assistance, and by 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.
The LTAP/TTAP network consists of 58 Centers (one Local Technical Assistance Program in each state as well as Puerto Rico, and seven Tribal Technical Assistance Programs that serve tribal governments). For more information about LTAP/TTAP or to find the LTAP or TTAP that serves your state, visit the National LTAP/TTAP website.

Retroreflectometer Loan Program
Michigan LTAP is now offering a retroreflectomer loan program. Retroreflectometers are used in the assessment method of maintaining sign retroreflectivity levels required by the Federal Highway Administration. Local agencies may borrow the retroreflectometer to use in their sign management program or just to try it out. You can view more information here.
