Locally Administered, Federal Aid Projects
LaBella has provided design and inspection services as the prime consultant on eight Locally Administered, Federal Aid highway projects for various municipalities in the past 10 years. LaBella has consistently provided the leadership to help our clients navigate the federal process, develop cost effective solutions and achieve compatibility with community goals. Our success relies on good communication, technical expertise aligned with project need, and the drive to examine alternative solutions that enable us to recommend the “right” project to each client. Innovative solutions have included three and four leg roundabouts, two-way traffic conversions and decorative concrete pavements and other enhancements.

Transportation Alternatives Program
LaBella has been successful in providing professional design and construction inspection services for a variety of “Active Transportation“ type projects under the Transportation Alternatives Program (TAP) administered by the NYSDOT. These projects typically promote walking and biking and can include streetscape enhancements and/or traffic calming strategies to improve the pedestrian realm. Several of our projects have involved the preservation and conversion of abandoned railroad corridors into multi-use trails.
