HAMPO develops and maintains three planning documents in accordance with the continuous, cooperative and comprehensive planning process detailed in the Fixing America’s Surface Transportation (FAST) Act, Public Law No. 114-94. The Metropolitan Transportation Plan, the Transportation Improvement Program  and the Unified Planning Work Program are the transportation planning HAMPO documents needed to meet Federal and State standards for Metropolitan Planning Organizations.

HAMPO’s Metropolitan Planning Area defines the area we are responsible for:

Unified Planning Work Program

The purpose of the Unified Planning Work Program (UPWP) is to describe the planning priorities of the metropolitan planning area and all planning activities anticipated during the next one year period, including expected costs for such activities. The UPWP is updated annually and aligns with the State’s fiscal year beginning July 1 and ending June 30.

Current Fiscal Year UPWP

Previous Fiscal Year UPWPs

On March 5, 2020 the FY 2020 UPWP was Administratively Modified for specific activity line items to match the actual time charged. The FY 2020 UPWP was Administratively Modified on August 24, 2020 to reflect budgetary changes to closeout FY 2020. 

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. The MTP was again amended on November 8, 2018 and February 14, 2019 to adopt performance management and measures.

 Transportation Improvement Program

The 2018-2021 Transportation Improvement Program provides a fiscally constrained program of highway and road projects for Hinesville Metropolitan Planning Area for the next four years. The current plan was approved by the Policy Committee on August 10, 2017 and administratively amended on September 22, 2017 to fix a clerical error. The TIP was again amended on November 8, 2018 and February 14, 2019 to adopt performance management and measures. The TIP was amended on April 9, 2020 to included updated project costs and maps. On July 2, 2020, an Administrative Modification was added to the TIP to reflect updated project costs.

There is a 30-Day Public Comment Period from August 14 – September 13, 2020 for a proposed amendment to the 2018-2021 TIP. This amendment adds an additional project to the current TIP, PI# 0017411. The draft TIP is available to view below:
