One of LTAP’s focus areas is Innovation—at the local level. A number of current initiatives including FHWA’s Every Day Counts (EDC), LTAP’s Build a Better Mousetrap (BABM), and DOTD’s Innovation Showcase provide opportunities to highlight successes and encourage innovative thinking. The Louisiana LTAP collaborates with municipalities, cities, parishes and other stakeholders to advance transportation systems using underutilized but proven effective innovations across all aspects of transportation.

Below are some initiatives that we encourage local agencies to consider participating and implementing in their respective communities:
