Unified Planning Work Program (UPWP)
Each year SWRPA prepares a Unified Planning Work Program in cooperation with the MPO and the State. This document describes all transportation and transportation-related planning activities that will be carried out in the upcoming fiscal year (July 1 to June 30). Development of a UPWP is a requirement of the Federal Transportation Act, known as the Transportation Equity Act for the 21st Century, or TEA-21. Development of the UPWP begins in early March with a final document produced in June.
