What is the UPWP?

The Transportation Council's UPWP identifies transportation planning activities that are to be undertaken in the region to further develop the policies and recommendations contained in the adopted metropolitan transportation plan, New Visions 2050. At minimum, the UPWP includes a description of each task, who the work will be performed by (i.e. the Transportation Council’s staff, CDRPC’s staff or a consultant) and the anticipated products. The time frames for completing each task are also identified along with costs and fund sources, with particular emphasis on those using federal transportation planning funds through FHWA and FTA. The 2023-2024 UPWP was adopted on March 2, 2023 and covers the state fiscal year beginning April 1, 2023 and ending March 31, 2024.
