Mission Statement

Improving the Quality and Safety of NYS Highways

The New York State LTAP Center - Cornell Local Roads Program provides unbiased, timely and exceptional technical assistance and training to highway and public works departments across New York State to help improve the quality and safety of roads and streets. We support local communities through strong collaborations with partners that enhance the sustainability of local highway assets.

Join us for a new, ongoing series of free foundational webinars focused on the important principles key to local highway agency operations and management. Focusing on why we do what we do - “Why do we put three signs in advance of a work zone?” each webinar offers a convenient way to learn the basics of a particular topic. Taken together, they cover the foundation of local highway issues.

Many webinars will be repeated yearly or every other year to give attendees the opportunity to attend the full series. Below is a listing of the current plan of webinars or download a copy here. Our foundational webinars are held most Tuesdays in the late fall, winter, and summer from 9am to 10am EST.
