COVID-19 Announcement

The Center for Transportation Research is watching the COVID-19 situation closely to ensure that we do our part to prevent the spread of this illness in our state. While the University of Tennessee's current COVID-19 policy allows us to move forward with scheduled in-state workshops, we have decided to cancel all workshops through the end of April. This decision takes into consideration CDC recommendations for "social distancing" and acknowledges that travel and meeting policies can and likely will change with little advanced notice as we move forward. We plan to reschedule these workshops in the same locations, but we are unable to set new dates at this time. In the meantime, CTR's office is open and available to provide remote assistance if we can help you with any immediate technical issues. Thank you for your patience as we all do our best to deal with this situation. Please stay safe out there and we look forward to seeing you in the future.

The Tennessee Transportation Assistance Program is part of a nationwide Local Technical Assistance Program (LTAP) financed jointly by the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), Tennessee Department of Transportation (TDOT), and the University of Tennessee.

TTAP moves innovative transportation technologies and practices into the hands of the men and women charged with maintaining Tennessee’s local roads and bridges. We are here to assist city and county staff to solve transportation related problems.

Our vision is to be the prime resource in developing and transferring innovative technologies, proven solutions, and reliable services to successfully resolve the transportation challenges facing local government.
