This page is designed for use by Local Public Agencies (LPAs) receiving federal transportation funding for locally-administered transportation projects and for consultants working with LPAs.
Any LPA using federal transportation dollars for a transportation project must follow the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet's LPA Project Guide, found on this site. The LPA Project Guide is also a resource for state-funded projects. LPAs should work with KYTC to understand if/when law and policies are different for state-funded projects.
The LPA Project Guide and this site are maintained by the KYTC Division of Program Management. The LPA Project Guide will be maintained as a living document; maintenance to hyperlinks, for example, will be performed as needed. If significant changes to content are made, the published date of the LPA Project Guide (currently July 21, 2012) or revised chapter will be updated.
It has come to our attention that the advertising requirements for LPA projects may be misinterpreted. The construction and maintenance federal regulations, 23 CFR 635.112, Advertising for Bids and Proposals, states "the advertisement and approved plans and specifications shall be available to bidders a minimum of three weeks (21 days) prior to opening of bids....." The day the bids are opened does not count as an advertising day.
