The Hampton Roads Transportation Planning Organization (HRTPO) Unified Planning Work Program (UPWP) describes transportation planning work and associated funding for the Hampton Roads Metropolitan Planning Area (MPA).  In addition to detailing the work associated with HRTPO core functions – the Long-Range Transportation Plan (LRTP), the Transportation Improvement Program (TIP), the Congestion Management Process (CMP), and Public Participation – the UPWP includes planning priorities identified by the HRTPO Board to ensure its vision and goals are addressed.
