REFERENCE SERIES: Transportation in Connecticut
Cover image for articles in the REFERENCE SERIES: Locally Administered Transportation Projects in Connecticut.
This reference series provides your initial source to understanding the transportation planning, development, design and implementation process. The articles cover a variety of programs and project related subjects. Many topics focus on elements particularly relevant to local public agencies (LPAs). Another great source of materials for LPAs, which was also developed as a joint effort with the Department and the Federal Highway Administration, is the University of Connecticut's Technology Transfer (T2) Center website at www.t2center.uconn.edu/lpa/.
