Printable Version of January 2010 LPA Manual
LPA 2010
EPG 136 LPA Policy presents the very latest LPA information, but this pdf file may be helpful for those wanting to easily print the LPA information as it was in January 2010.

The Local Public Agency (LPA) Policy, produced by the Missouri Department of Transportation (MoDOT) is intended to be used as a guide for cities and counties that sponsor projects utilizing federal transportation funds provided under the current transportation bill, the Safe, Accountable, Flexible, Efficient Transportation Equity Act: A Legacy for Users (SAFETEA-LU). The local agency may reference MoDOT's Standard Specifications for Highway Construction for issues not addressed in the LPA. The LPA addresses five local programs that are funded under the current transportation act:

  • Off-System Bridge Replacement and Rehabilitation Program (BRO)
  • On-System Bridge Replacement and Rehabilitation Program (BRM)
  • STP Urban Attributable
  • STP Urban Non-Attributable

Title 23, as amended by SAFETEA-LU requires MoDOT to administer all funds apportioned and allocated to the state under this transportation act. SAFETA-LU directs that certain percentages of funding categories within the state's apportionment must be sub-allocated towards the Off-System Bridge Replacement and Rehabilitation Program (BRO), the STP Urban Attributable Program, the STP - Enhancement Program, the Congestion Mitigation and Air Quality Program and Safe Routes to School.

For projects administered by local officials, the state will furnish information concerning the necessary federal requirements and will act as coordinator. The necessary design, acquisition, environmental, historical and archaeological clearances and approvals, construction and maintenance of improvements will be the responsiblitity of the local agency. A MoDOT district representative will be the primary contact, furnish the necessary guidelines and coordinate the necessary reviews and approvals. MoDOT personnel will advise and assist the local agency in meeting the requirements of the program. Additional information regarding federal requirements is available through the MoDOT district representative.
