Unified Planning Work Program

Annual Transportation Planning Program

The Unified Planning Work Program (UPWP) is updated annually to provide citizens and stakeholders the necessary transparency to see about how federal transportation planning funds are being used by the MPO, local governments and transit agencies, and the Tennessee Department of Transportation in order to meet federal metropolitan planning requirements. The UPWP is developed by MPO staff in consultation with partner agencies and input from local citizens and stakeholders. It may be amended to account for changes in funding or project needs.

The MPO's current UPWP, adopted in August 2018, provides over $4 million for planning activities in fiscal year 2019 between October 1, 2018 and September 30, 2019.
