HAMPO Plans and Documents

HAMPO Operating Documents:



HAMPO develops and maintains three planning documents in accordance with the CCC (Continuous, Cooperative and Comprehensive) planning process detailed in the Fixing America’s Surface Transportation (FAST) Act, Public Law No. 114-94, December 4, 2015 and associated regulations. The Metropolitan Transportation Plan (MTP), the Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) and the Unified Planning Work Program (UPWP) comprise the documents that must be developed and adopted to meet Federal and State standards for Metropolitan Planning Organizations. These documents are described as follows:

Metropolitan Transportation Plan

The goal of the MTP is to create an effective public policy framework for mobility and development together with a set of priority transportation investments that will address the area’s current and long-term needs. The projects that are selected as priorities for the transportation network will be programmed into the Statewide TIP for funding.  The plan must comply with Federal guidelines as outlined in MAP-21 and is updated every 5 years. The 2015-2040 Metropolitan Transportation Plan (MTP) has been approved by the HAMPO Policy Committee on September 10, 2015 and amended November 19, 2015 with the addition of two bridge projects.
