Local Programs – Operating is responsible for administration and management of all federal and state funds that support local agency transportation systems. By providing engineering and technical assistance to cities, counties, ports, tribal governments, transit, metropolitan and regional planning organizations, Local Programs helps build and improve local transportation systems using a practical solutions approach to improve processes and complete projects in a timely and cost-effective manner.

Under WSDOT's stewardship agreement with the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), Local Programs serves as the steward of the FHWA funding that goes to public agencies throughout the state. This program also provides the operating subsidy to reimburse Wahkiakum County for a portion of the operating and maintenance costs deficit for operating the Puget Island-Westport ferry, pursuant to RCW 47.56.720.
