Local Public Agency Administration

About Us:

In accordance with the Code of Federal Regulations 23CFR1.11 and 23CFR635.105 the South Carolina Department of Transportation may delegate administration and management of certain Federal-Aid projects to a Local Public Agency (LPA). However, this delegation does not relieve SCDOT of its responsibility of administering those funds. LPA Administration is responsible for verifying that all federal requirements have been met in the LPA process.
