Innovative Solutions

The Local Highway Technical Assistance Council and our T2 Center encourage sharing innovative ideas and efficient practices.

Don’t forget to submit your innovative solutions to our recognition local program – LHTAC’s Build a Better Mousetrap Competition.

We forward these on for national recognition through the National Build a Better Mousetrap Competition.

The Build a Better Mousetrap National Competition highlights innovative solutions to everyday problems and issues that local and tribal transportation workers encounter. They can range from the development of tools, equipment modifications, to processes that increase safety, reduce cost, improve efficiency and the quality of transportation.
