Unified Planning Work Program

Unified Planning Work Program!

The Unified Planning Work Program (UPWP) describes transportation planning priorities and activities managed by the Miami-Dade TPO. The program includes specific tasks for the TPO and our planning partners that will be performed every two years. Our current UPWP is being carried out from July 1, 2016 through June 30, 2018, and outlines the planning, projects, budget, and activities that support the comprehensive and multimodal transportation improvement program approved for Miami-Dade County.

Activities in the UPWP are completed in cooperation with various participating Miami-Dade County Departments, regional agencies, the Florida Department of Transportation and planning partners. This work is guided by policies of the State of Florida and the Miami-Dade TPO Governing Board.

Guidance from the Federal transportation agencies that support the program is also used as a significant element in the definition of planning projects. The UPWP includes a description of the planning work and resulting products, which agencies will perform the work, time frames for completing the work, the cost of the work, and the source of funds.
