Local Technical Assistance Program: Supplemental Program

The Supplemental Local Technical Assistance Program (LTAP) project developed and maintained an extensive and robust mailing list, containing nearly 30,000 records, encompassing California’s transportation community of professionals. LTAP produced 35 newsletters, seven “Tech Topics” and three “Pavement Technology Updates.” These were distributed to over 19,000 people in print and over 11,000 people electronically. The multi-media training library contained 875 items. The Tech Transfer web site was being viewed by over 25,000 individuals monthly, providing access to services, training, resources and information on Caltrans sponsored research. Library staff responded to 369 requests for reference services. Library staff added 2,464 publications – all produced or sponsored by Caltrans – to the TRIS database. Tech Transfer distributed 67 final research reports produced by Caltrans to the 16 depository libraries in California and the 4 major transportation libraries in the United States. Under this contract, 7 new Road Shows were developed and all existing Road Shows were revised to stay current. Since 2000, the LTAP project delivered 266 Road Shows and trained 7,885 people. LTAP organized and delivered the annual California Pavement Preservation conference in 2006, 2007, 2008 and 2009, and hosted the First International Conference on Pavement Preservation in 2010. Attendance averaged over 300 and in total, 1,674 people attended Pavement Preservation Conferences. Organized and delivered six ad hoc workshops since this task was added in 2007. Tech Transfer Completed 20 Preliminary Investigations. Between February 2008 and September 2009, an eLearning solution to introduce learners to Life Cycle Cost Analysis (LCCA), the LCCA Procedures Manual, and the RealCost software tool was developed.
