The Highway Design-Local Roads section is responsible for overseeing a variety of federal and state-funded improvements on town-owned roadways that are designed by municipal staff or consultants retained by the municipality.  During the design process we oversee coordination with external agencies and Department support units.  The Local Roads section oversees the formal design aspects of the following programs: STP-Urban, STP-Urban Pavement Preservation/Rehabilitation, STP-Rural Major Collector, Transportation Enhancements, Transportation Alternatives, Safe Routes to School (SRTS), Local Road Accident Reduction, Transportation, Community and System Preservation (TCSP), Small Town Economic Assistance Program (STEAP), and the Local Transportation Capital Improvement Program (LoTCIP).  
Transportation improvement projects may be performed under, but not limited to, the aforementioned programs.

NEW FHWA Video Library!  The FHWA has announced the launch of a new and innovative transportation resource called Federal-aid Essentials for Local Public Agencies. This resource puts key information about Federal-aid requirements on a single public Web site at www.fhwa.dot.gov/federal-aidessentials. Local public agency staffers now have a centralized hub for guidance, policies, procedures, and best practices for administering Federal-aid projects. The Web site’s main feature is a library of videos covering key aspects of the project development and delivery process.
