The Unified Planning Work Program (UPWP) outlines federal and state funded transportation planning activities and corresponding end products anticipated to occur from July 1, 2020 through June 30, 2022.

The Pinellas County Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) conducts and supports transportation planning efforts including systems planning, long range transportation planning, and project prioritization and implementation. The UPWP applies to the Pinellas Transportation Study Area, which encompasses Pinellas County.

MPOs are required to adopt UPWPs pursuant to Federal and State law (Chapter 339 Florida Statutes). The objective of the UPWP is to ensure a continuing, cooperative and comprehensive approach to planning for the full spectrum of transportation needs within the urban area and to ensure coordination with adjacent urban areas and the region.

The UPWP is developed based on public and stakeholder input. A draft UPWP was reviewed at the February 27, 2020 Citizens Advisory Committee (CAC) meeting, February 26, 2020 Technical Coordinating Committee meeting and March 11, 2020 MPO Board meeting. Through the Technical Coordinating Committee, the MPO asks for input regarding local transportation planning projects. Draft and adopted versions of the UPWP are posted on the MPO website and in committee and Board agenda packets. Notice of meetings involving the review and adoption of the UPWP were available online, including on the MPO website. The public is open to comment at all MPO Board meetings.
