The work we’re doing this year.
The Unified Transportation Planning Work Program and Budget (UPWP) spells out the MIC’s transportation planning and administrative activities, budgets and funding sources for the current calendar year, as well as an estimate of this information for the next year.
The UPWP is updated annually to show how federal transportation planning funds are being used by the MIC in order to meet federal metropolitan planning requirements. The UPWP is developed by MIC staff in consultation with partner jurisdictions and agencies and approved by the Policy Board, MnDOT and the FHWA.
It may be amended to account for changes in funding or project needs.
