Unified Planning Work Program (UPWP)

A Unified Planning Work Program (UPWP) is a required document outlining transportation planning activities performed in accordance with United States Code (23 CFR Part 450.308). The work program serves as a guide to develop and advance the implementation of plans, programs, and projects that seek to address the eight planning factors identified in §450.306(a)). Such factors include, but are not limited to: preserving and improving the transportation system, enhancing mobility and connectivity, supporting economic vitality, safety and security, as well as environmental considerations.

The UPWP process provides the SWRMPO  and HVMPO technical and support services which assist in selecting transportation investments and setting priorities in the region.
