Opening – Montana Local Technical Assistance Program (LTAP) Director

The mission of the national Local Technical Assistance Program (LTAP) is to foster a safe, efficient, environmentally sound transportation system by improving skills and knowledge of local transportation providers through training, technical assistance and technology transfer.

Montana has over 70,000 miles of roads in cities, counties and highway districts. Montana LTAP’s focus is on assisting state and county road offices and city street departments in developing effective road and bridge maintenance and repair solutions, and providing worker safety training courses.

LTAP is financially supported by the Federal Highway Administration, Montana Department of Transportation, Montana State Legislature, and Montana State University- Bozeman.

The LTAP Director will be responsible for technical, financial, and administrative management of the Program. Reporting to the WTI Executive Director, the LTAP Director will coordinate and deliver education and training to transportation officials and private/ consulting firms to support Montana and national goals (e.g. organizational excellence, workforce development, infrastructure management and safety). The Director will coordinate and develop proposals to expand “base” funding for added-value or new initiatives and opportunities and will conduct and oversee transportation engineering research and training projects.

The Director is responsible for coordinating activities with other WTI Centers/ Programs, and with other internal/external partners to assure the program’s continued growth and diversification to make Montana LTAP a national, regional and local leader. The Director will expand MT LTAP’s influence on transportation issues on Federal lands and National Parks, Tribal lands and be a more of leader in the National LTAP Association, Unpaved Roads Institute and the TRB Low Volume Roads Committee.
