MPO staff conduct technical assistance supporting the transportation planning needs of the region as a whole, as well as those of specific cities, towns, and agencies. These studies aim to plan and design both safer travel for all modes and more walkable, bikeable, accessible, and resilient communities.

Each year, the MPO produces a Unified Planning Work Program (UPWP), which programs studies and other staff work for the federal fiscal year (October 1–September 30). The UPWP work undertaken by MPO staff fulfills several functions:

  • Supports the MPO: Supports the MPO’s collaborative decision-making processes, developing models, engaging the public, and ensuring compliance with federal MPO requirements
  • Gathers Data: Collects data about the transportation system, both its characteristics and use
  • Identifies Needs: Analyzes the needs of different transportation system user groups, differentiated by demographics and mode choice, to improve or complement the LRTP Needs Assessment
  • Develops Project Concepts: Conducts studies and makes technical recommendations for improving the transportation system—along roadway corridors, at intersections, on bicycle and pedestrian facilities, and on transit routes
  • Thinks Ahead: Conducts research to help the MPO anticipate trends and conditions that help shape the transportation landscape; helps the MPO to understand the relationship between transportation and other issues
