Connecticut Municipal Local Traffic Authority Education Program

Every Town or City in Connecticut has a designated Local Traffic Authority (LTA). LTAs are responsible for many regulatory items on local roads. The first point of contact for any traffic related concern on ANY public road is the LTA. The LTA also works with the CT Department of Transportation (CTDOT) and the Office of the State Traffic Administration (OSTA) on traffic-related matters on State roads.

On June 26, 2023, Governor Ned Lamont signed Senate Bill 904. Section 5 of the bill requires Local Traffic Authorities (or their designee) to attend a training program, through the T2 Center, to provide them with critical knowledge and skills to better serve in this important role.

To assist the LTAs in meeting this legislative requirement, the T2 Center has created a new Local Traffic Authority 101 course with in-person and virtual options. After completing this course, to satisfy future annual training requirements, LTAs can take classes in our LTA certificate program. The T2 Center will continue to offer a variety of LTA required and elective classes each year.
