The UNH Technology Transfer Center serves highway and public works departments to improve the quality and safety of roads and streets in towns, cities, and counties throughout New Hampshire. As the site of the state’s Local Technical Assistance Program (LTAP), UNH T2 provides training, technical assistance, newsletters, research and guidance to increase the knowledge of the transportation workforce and decision makers. UNH T2 also provides access to a network of knowledgeable partners and peers to strengthen collaboration and support local highway teams in maintaining their communities' assets.
The history of LTAP
LTAP was established by the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA)in 1982. Beginning with 10 Centers throughout the United States, the LTAP network now includes a center in every state and Puerto Rico, as well as centers serving the Tribal community. Through LTAP, the FHWA helps local highway agencies in each state meet the challenge of maintaining and rehabilitating roads and bridges, and to learn about best practices and innovative technology to meet local needs. UNH T2 Center is also part of the National Local Technical Assistance Program Association (NLTAPA), a not-for-profit organization representing the LTAP and TTAP member centers across the country and Puerto Rico.
SADES (Statewide Asset Data Exchange System), including RSMS as it may be referred to, establishes access to a transportation asset management inventory for many state and local agencies.
