Two of the main responsibilities of the Transportation Planning Organization are to develop a Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) and a Unified Planning Work Program (UPWP).
The Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) is the Central Virginia Transportation Organization’s (CVTPO) mechanism for allocating its limited transportation resources among the various needs of the area. It is a four–year program that addresses the immediate funding needs for transportation systems management (TSM) and operations. It also addresses the immediate funding needs for the transportation projects drawn from the Virginia Department of Transportation’s Six-Year Improvement Program, public transit agencies, Lynchburg Regional Airport’s Capital Improvement Plans and the Central Virginia Long Range Transportation Plan.
The Unified Planning Work Program (UPWP) is annual statement of work, which identifies the planning activities which will be carried out within the Central Virginia TPO. It also allocates the TPO’s funding by task. Each fiscal year, the UPWP is updated to reflect the various planning tasks and priorities for the following year.
