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.

Draft FFY 2025 UPWP Development

Each year, the Cape Cod Joint Transportation Committee and the Cape Cod Metropolitan Planning Organization meet publicly to review the development of the UPWP.  The process for the development of the UPWP for the upcoming federal fiscal year began in January 2024. Project selections take place in March, and the draft document is released in April for public comment. The draft documents are finalized and voted on by the MPO in May.

The public input process is an essential facet of the transportation planning process. It allows people who use roadways daily to share their experiences and views on potential changes. If you would like to share your support for a project to be programmed onto the TIP, please email us at MPO and JTC meetings allow for public comments. Public meetings and public comment opportunities for the TIP will be announced soon. Comments are also accepted online. Click the button below to share your thoughts.
