Equipment Loan Program
Data helps roadway managers make informed decisions when prioritizing projects and deciding on the type and level of work that should be done. Collecting and analyzing data can help your agency prioritize safety, maintenance, and development needs. Having a better understanding of what is currently occurring is beneficial for future planning and helps provide improved safety and better service to motorists and pedestrians in your area.Local agencies are encouraged to take advantage of the tools available in the Equipment Loan Program as a way of saving money versus purchasing equipment that may only be needed for a short time.
