The Unified Planning Work Program (UPWP) incorporates all transportation planning and supporting comprehensive planning activities anticipated in the Bend MPO area each fiscal year. It is intended to provide a framework for the coordination of transportation planning efforts by local, State, and regional agencies through the Bend MPO Policy Board. The UPWP outlines the major work tasks and many specific subtasks.
The 2019-20 UPWP was reviewed for comments by FHWA, FTA and ODOT in February 2109. The MPO Policy Board reviewed the annual work program and approved the plan by way of Resolution 2019-03 on April 16, 2019.
The Unified Planning Work Program (UPWP) for the upcoming Fiscal Year (July 1, 2018 through June 30, 2019) includes descriptions of planning tasks, a schedule for completing tasks, and source of funding. The UPWP is updated annually. The majority of the funds that support the UPWP tasks come from Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) and Surface Transportation Block Grant (STBG) Funds.
