Unified Planning Work Program

The purpose of the Dover/Kent County MPO’s Unified Planning Work Program, or UPWP, is to present the planning priorities facing the metropolitan planning area and describe all metropolitan transportation and transportation-related air quality planning activities anticipated therein during the next fiscal year, regardless of funding sources or agencies conducting activities.  The discussion should be provided in sufficient detail to indicate who will perform the work, the schedule for completing it, and the products that will be produced.

The Dover/Kent County MPO is federally required to have a written work program in accordance with the federal transportation bill, Fixing America’s Surface Transportation, also called the FAST Act. FAST authorizes federal surface transportation programs for highways, highway safety and transit.
