We presently have a single WSUS server centrally located that all clients are
reporting to. We want to direct clients to their local windows server for the
updates that are approved, is this possible?

Thanks in advance

Only if you install WSUS on each of those site-specific servers. I generally
do not recommend creating remote WSUS Servers unless there's a
business-critical reason for doing so. If you already have all clients
updating from the central server, I would suggest leaving it that way.

If, however, any of those clients are on a remote site with bandwidth
availability < 10kb/sec per system, then a remote WSUS server would be a
recommended solution, especially if a remote file server is already
deployed.

Also, exceptionally large sites, regardless of available bandwidth, are also
good candidates for using a remote WSUS server, particularly if the server
infrastructure is already deployed.

Refer to the WSUS Deployment Guide (available from the microsoft.com link
below) for detailed information concerning various multi-server deployment
scenarios.
