The MPO’s transportation planning functions are supported primarily by federal and state grants. Tasks, products, and budgeted funds are identified in advance for two fiscal years (FY) and documented in the UPWP. June marks the end of the first year of our two-year work program. Prior to the start of FY17/18 in July, budget figures are being updated to close out work in year one and to reflect new funding allocations, rollover funds, and projects for year two. Major projects for FY 17/18 and administrative documents are also updated.
In March and April, the FY 17/18 UPWP update was forwarded to the MPO for approval by the CAC, TAC, BPAC, LRC, TDCB and Policy Committees. At the May 2nd MPO meeting staff will be seeking approval of the amended document which will then be transmitted to FDOT, FHWA, and FTA for final approval.
