At their March 23 meeting, the Policy Board approved SJTPO’s Fiscal Year 2016 Unified Planning Work Program (UPWP). The UPWP serves as SJTPO’s blueprint for all federally funded surface transportation planning activities in the region, from July 1, 2015 to June 30, 2016. $2,970,598 is programmed among the Central Staff Work Program, the Subregional Transportation Planning Program, and the Technical Program.

Of special note is the Subregional Program, which allocates $348,500 to the four SJTPO Counties for work that supports regional planning initiatives and their own transportation planning needs. The Technical Program for FY 2016 includes $1,100,000 for consultant-assisted work that will enable SJTPO to address federal and local transportation priorities. Data collection, project development assistance, and work leading to the update of the Regional Transportation Plan in July 2016 are prominent elements of our technical work for the coming year.

The UPWP is available for review, here.
