What is the UPWP?
The Cape Cod Unified Planning Work Program (UPWP) is a list of planning activities anticipated to be performed by MPO staff
over the next year. The UPWP is developed and approved by the Cape Cod Metropolitan Planning Organization, the regional body comprised of local, regional, state, and federal officials charged with overseeing the region's transportation planning process. Discussions at MPO meetings help to select planning studies to be included in the UPWP.
UPWP Funding - Funding comes from a combination of state and federal sources, typically in the range of $900,000 per year.
UPWP Studies - Typical efforts include: data collection efforts, Living Streets studies, safety studies, bicycle planning initiatives, and coastal resiliency projects. Planning efforts are designed to address safety and congestion concerns for all transportation modes, including vehicle, transit, bicycle, and pedestrian travel. Recent studies include the Top Crash Location Report and Crash Dashboard and the Mashpee Rotary Study.
