LRSP Resources

What is the Local Road Safety Program?

Funding for Local Road Safety Improvement Projects is available through the Local Road Safety Program (LRSP). It is a cost disbursement program that provides an opportunity for local governments to utilize federal-aid funds for safety improvements on locally owned and maintained roads.

The new Louisiana Center for Transportation Safety (LCTS) now administers the Local Road Safety Program (LRSP) in cooperation with Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development (DOTD). The LCTS coordinates highway safety activities and resources with LADOTD to facilitate submittal and review of project applications.

Over 120 (and counting) life-saving projects have been funded since the program’s inception in 2006, including installation of enhanced traffic signs and pavement markings, guardrail, intersection improvements, safety studies, curve delineation, and many more.

Intent of the Program

To increase local community participation in roadway safety and to develop and implement road safety improvements on public roads under parish or municipal jurisdiction.

Who is Eligible to Request Funding?

Parish or and municipal jurisdictions governments.

Project Applications Accepted Anytime Throughout the Year
