Local Agencies

From locally funded projects to MDOT’s Local Agency Program (LAP), project-specific funding drives the composition of the contract documents, including drawings, construction specifications, and engineering cost estimates.

road commissions

LRE’s rapport with county staff have opened opportunities for building relationships with road commissions in addition to drain offices. Our knowledge of the counties we serve proves to be an asset when working with the transportation side as well.

The LRE project team has experience in the following areas working with county road commissions:

  • Road resurfacing design including full-depth reconstruction and resurfacing
  • Roundabout design including single-lane standard and compact roundabouts
