LOCAL PUBLIC AGENCY (LPA) PROJECTS
Robert J. Jilla, P.E.
Bureau Chief, Transportation Planning and Modal Programs
The Alabama Department of Transportation (ALDOT), under 23 CFR 1.11 and 635.105, may
delegate management of certain federally-funded projects to a Local Public Agency
(LPA). This delegation does not, in any way, relieve ALDOT of its responsibility in
administering the funds for those projects. The Bureau of Transportation Planning and
Modal Programs is responsible for verifying that all federal requirements have been met in the LPA Process.
This LPA site is intended for use by those local governments and agencies interested
in developing LPA projects. Interested parties should visit or download items
pertaining to the LPA process and the various project types. Local agencies and or
their consultants should coordinate all activities with the appropriate Division
Engineer and the Bureau of Transportation Planning and Modal Programs.
