Unified Planning Work Program

slider-UPWPThe Unified Planning Work Program (UPWP) sets out the transportation planning activities and products to be developed by the Metropolitan Planning Organization and other transportation planning agencies for the current and next fiscal year.

MPO planning functions are paid for in large part through federal grants for transportation planning. So are some Florida Department of Transportation and HART planning functions and occasionally the planning functions of other agencies, such as the Aviation Authority and Bay Area Commuter Services. Such federally funded transportation planning activities must be identified in advance of each fiscal year. The activities, products and budgeted funds are documented in the UPWP, which is updated bi-annually by the MPO.

Each year, the federal and state governments identify “Planning Emphasis Areas” to be addressed in UPWP planning activities. This guidance supplements the legislation and rules that govern MPO activities, which include mandates for public involvement, congestion management, twenty-year plans, transportation improvement programs, streamlined environmental analyses, regional coordination within urbanized areas, and planning factors such as economic vitality, safety and security, and others. Consistent with the MPO’s Public Participation Plan, the UPWP is developed with input from local governments, authorities, and the public. UPWP amendments and modifications occur from time to time, with notice provided as stipulated by the Public Participation Plan.
