The Local Program Leadership Team (LPLT) provides strategic level planning, decision-making, and guidance for key aspects of local project delivery.
ODOT's Local Program involves collaboration among the Active Transportation Section, Regional Local Program Units & Technical Centers, Technical Services and local agencies, for the development and delivery of local projects in compliance with program requirements.
The LPLT ensures that ODOT's Local Program fulfills its commitments by delivering local programs, projects, and policies that comply with state and federal requirements and meet the needs of ODOT's customers and stakeholders.
