The Unified Planning Work Program (UPWP) outlines the planning efforts the MPO will undertake each year and serves as both the annual budget and the guide to work tasks for the MPO staff. Tasks include general maintenance of the Metropolitan Transportation Plan and Triangle Regional Travel Demand Model, special studies, public outreach and engagement, and technical analysis. The UPWP also includes the planning tasks our transit providers undertake to meet Federal Transit Administration requirements.  A new UPWP is drafted every year, usually in December or January and brought to the MPO board in late winter or early spring for approval.

FY 2022 Work Program - Proposed

The Proposed FY22 UPWP outlines the priority work for the MPO for the period from July 1, 2020 through June 30, 2022. Several special studies that are already underway will continue in FY22, including the Triangle Bikeway Study and the Western Wake Signal System Integration Study. New studies expected to begin in FY 22 are the Southeast Area Study Update and the Mobility Management Program Study. The MPO will also focus time and resources on updating the regional Travel Demand Model, maintaining the TIP, and completing the work on the 2050 Metropolitan Transportation Plan. Other ongoing programs include the LAPP, public engagement, and Wake Transit.

The MPO’s federally-required self-certification checklist is included in the UPWP as an Appendix.

The Proposed FY 22 UPWP is available for public comment until February 14, 2021, and a public hearing will be held at the CAMPO Executive Board meeting on February 17, 2021. The Executive Board will consider adoption of the FY 22 UPWP in March 2021. Comments can be submitted through the webform, via email to comments@campo-nc.us, via phone to 919-996-4403, or via U.S. Mail to: CAMPO, Attn: Bonnie Parker, 421 Fayetteville St., Suite 203, Raleigh, NC 27601.

FY 2021 Work Program - Updates

FY2021 Draft

The FY 2021 Work Program was approved by the Executive Board on February 19, 2020, and later amended on November 18, 2020. It covers anticipated MPO work efforts between July 1, 2020 and June 30, 2021. Included as an appendix is the Capital Area MPO's Self-Certification.

In January of 2021, MPO staff recommended a second amendment to the Work Program. Amendment #2 is necessary in order to include the documentation of recently-awarded FTA funding through the FTA Pilot Program for Transit-Oriented Development Planning. NCDOT will utilize this funding to conduct TOD planning along the S-Line rail corridor, which runs from Sanford, NC to Henderson, NC, and traverses several CAMPO member jurisdictions. The federal grant will be matched with local and state funds. No CAMPO funds are anticipated to be used for the study, however, CAMPO will devote staff time and resources to assist with the planning effort as requested by NCDOT or member agencies. This study is anticipated to begin in FY 21 and conclude in FY 23. Since this is federal planning funding, it is required to be included in the UPWP for documentation. 

Amendment #2 is open for public comment until February 14, 2021. It is anticipated that the Executive Board will consider adoption of the amendment at its February 17, 2021 meeting. Comments can be submitted through the webform, via email to comments@campo-nc.us, via phone to 919-996-4403, or via U.S. Mail to: CAMPO, Attn: Bonnie Parker, 421 Fayetteville St., Suite 203, Raleigh, NC 27601.
