Connecticut Municipal Local Traffic Authority Education Program

Every Town or City in Connecticut has one person designated as a Local Traffic Authority (LTA). This person works with the CT Department of Transportation (CTDOT) and others on traffic-related matters on State roads. LTAs are also 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.

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 (LTA) 101 course. In-person and virtual options will be offered each year. The T2 Center will also continue to offer our LTA Certificate Program to support annual training requirements and LTA professional development.
