Unified Planning Work Program

The Unified Planning Work Program (UPWP) describes the annual transportation planning work priorities and associated funding for the Richmond Regional TPO. The UPWP is developed by the Richmond Regional TPO in coordination with the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) and the Virginia Department of Rail and Public Transportation (DRPT).

The UPWP details the planning tasks and studies to be conducted, any transportation-related air quality planning tasks, all federally funded studies, state/local planning activities conducted without Federal funds, funding sources identified for each project, a schedule of activities, and who the responsible party is for each task/study.

Each task in the UPWP includes information on who will perform the work, the schedule for completing the work, resulting end products, and proposed funding and source of funds.
