LTAP’s Local Road Safety Program (LRSP) is in the process of facilitating a second round of Crash Data Workshops for parishes and municipalities in collaboration with each of the 9 Louisiana Regional Safety Coalitions. Additionally, LRSP staff is available to meet with local jurisdictions interested in preparing a Local Road Safety Plan and/or applying for LRSP funding to implement transportation safety projects on the roads that they own.
The Build a Better Mousetrap National Competition highlights innovative solutions to everyday problems and issues that local and tribal transportation workers and other LTAP/TTAP clients encounter. They can range from the development of tools, equipment modifications, and/or processes that increase safety, reduce cost, improve efficiency and the quality of transportation. Have a better idea that you have implemented in your agency? Submit it for the competition! Entries are due May 4.

Road and street intersections form the basis of a safe and efficient local transportation system, and when well planned, maintained, and operated, can contribute to the livability and sustainability of local communities. Unfortunately, over 40 percent of local road fatal and severe injury crashes in Louisiana occur at intersections, and often the operational and accessibility needs of all users are not fully considered. Local Public Agencies have an obligation to address these issues as part of managing their road networks, improving quality of life and reducing agency liability by providing intersections that afford safe and appropriate access to all users. This one-day class will help local agency personnel manage their intersections using best practice resources from FHWA, ITE, and other authorities.
