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.
