Advisory Board

In September 1986, the Colorado LTAP Advisory Board was established to provide input and guidance for program activities that are most beneficial to local road agency personnel. Aligning to the CDOT Regions (see map below), the LTAP Advisory Board is composed of a statewide representation of transportation specialists.  There are voting and non-voting board members representing Program Sponsors, City, County and DOT transportation agencies across the state.  Participation from partner divisions such as CDOT’s Local Public Agency (LPA) and new Safety Circuit Rider (SCR) programs, and FRCC’s Highway Maintenance Management Degree program is also encouraged. Board meetings are held quarterly.

We’re currently soliciting new members (see open seats below) to help guide the development Colorado LTAP's strategic direction, equipment selection, and to share their experiences and ideas about what works well (and what does not) as regional representatives/contacts for local agencies. Contact the Colorado LTAP office if you are interested in participating as an LTAP Advisory Board member!
