An Annual Transportation Planning Program & MPO Budget
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 Alabama 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 2011, extends through September 30, 2012. As adopted, the program funds nearly $7,479,202 worth of planning activities and studies for the Birmingham metropolitan planning area.
