New Mexico Local Technical Assistance Program


During the Spring of 2017 the New Mexico Department of Transportation began a partnership with the University of New Mexico’s Civil Engineering Department to provide local governments and municipalities in New Mexico with technical assistance, trainings and information as part of the Federal Highway Administration’s Local Technical Assistance Program (LTAP). Previously, LTAP services had been coordinated by NMDOT’s Planning Bureau.

During this transition period this site will provide basic LTAP information. Over the next several months we will be developing a new, comprehensive, New Mexico LTAP website with resources designed to help local governments and municipalities achieve their transportation planning, management and engineering needs. We will also be developing and coordinating new trainings. If you have received an e-mail from us recently announcing this transition, we will contact you again when our new website is up. If not, please send us your contact information and we will add you to our mailing list (see our contact information below). Our plan is to send no more than 4 messages per year, which will contain a quarterly update of available LTAP information resources and trainings. 

About LTAP

The LTAP center provides technical assistance and trainings to support workforce development with the aim of helping local governments and municipalities across New Mexico meet their transportation needs. While the LTAP center can provide information and guidance that may help local governments and municipalities address a wide range of transportation management, planning and engineering challenges, we are not an engineering service. We do not design transportation projects.
