Unified Planning Work Program

Unifying efforts for the greater good

Background

The Unified Planning Work Program (UPWP) outlines transportation planning priorities and work tasks. Preparation of the UPWP is required by the federal transportation legislation. The latest federal transportation legislation is the Bipartisan Infrastructure Bill (BIL) enacted as the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (IIJA), which was signed into law on November 15, 2021. The UPWP is also a requirement of the Metropolitan Planning Code of Federal Regulations (23CFR 450.308) of the United States Department of Transportation. The UPWP must present a continuing, cooperative, and comprehensive (the “3C”) approach to transportation planning activities. The UPWP is prepared with cooperation and guidance from federal, state, and local agencies, as well as state & public transportation operators.
