The Alabama Transportation Assistance Program (ATAP), Alabama’s LTAP Center, serves state and local transportation and public works agencies in Alabama through training and technical assistance in the areas of safety, infrastructure management, workforce development, and organizational excellence. ATAP, housed within the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at Auburn University, leverages the resources of the U.S. Department of Transportation, the Alabama Department of Transportation, and Auburn University. Auburn University has had the privilege of housing the Local Transportation Assistance Program since its inception in 1983.


ATAP offers in-person workshops and live webinars throughout the year on a variety of transportation-related topics. The training resources offered through our program aim to address all aspects of managing streets and highways, from temporary traffic control to permanent solutions.


ATAP has recently added the opportunity to learn on-the-go and at your own pace with asynchronous online courses on transportation topics. The online learning platform also features training resources offered by other partner organizations and LTAP centers in the U.S.


ATAP organizes two major conferences each year. The Alabama Transportation Conference provides an opportunity for professionals to share innovative advances in transportation planning, design, construction, operations, and maintenance. The goal of the Alabama Road Safety Conference is to emphasize the implementation of safety processes through all stages of roadway planning, design, and operations through practical guidance specifically geared to improving road safety.


The Safety Technical Assistance for Counties and Cities (STACC) program provides technical support, training, and other activities to Alabama counties and cities to support their efforts to reduce fatalities and injuries on local roads. Examples of STACC services and products include assistance in crash data analysis, determination of horizontal curve signage needs, and a safety video series on ATAP’s YouTube channel.


The Alabama Transportation Funding Guide contains information pertaining to state and federal programs that provide transportation project funding to local governments and other entities. This information is intended to serve as a guide for preliminary funding searches.
