The Federal Highway Administration’s Center for Local Aid Support has officially launched more options for individual professional development online. A series of e-learning modules is available on the FHWA CLAS website for local agencies. Inaugural topics include gravel roads construction and maintenance, project bundling, safe transportation for every pedestrian, construction inspection of rockeries, and geosynthetic reinforced soil—integrated bridge system.

The training modules are the first in a growing portfolio of web-based training that focuses on innovative technologies and hot topics. The Center for Local Aid Support is committed to empowering transportation professionals with the skills necessary to deploy new innovation that keeps transportation moving into the future. These new e-learning courses allows us another way to meet this commitment. The courses are conducted 100 percent online and are on-demand, allowing users to learn at their own pace and on their own time. The courses can be accessed on the Center for Local Aid Support website. If you have questions, please contact us at
