The Unified Planning Work Program (UPWP) acts as a work plan, or schedule, outlining specific work products MPO staff anticipate completing. It is based on the MTP and updated yearly.
The Unified Planning Work Program (UPWP) is the coordinated work program for the St. Joseph Area Transportation Study Organization, designated as the metropolitan planning organization (MPO) for the St. Joseph, MO – Elwood/Wathena, KS area. Developed in consultation with the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), Federal Transit Administration (FTA), Missouri Department of Transportation (MoDOT), Kansas Department of Transportation (KDOT) and local transit providers, the intent of the work program is to define the major administrative, planning and technical work elements for the upcoming year and identify the funding sources for these elements. Under federal regulations prospective work elements listed in the UPWP are required to address multi-modal transportation planning needs throughout the urbanized area.
