The Unified Planning Work Program (UPWP) is the program of federally-funded transportation planning activities to be advanced by Genesee Transportation Council (GTC) staff, member agencies, and other jurisdictions in the Genesee-Finger Lakes Region.
The Fiscal Year 2020-2021 Unified Planning Work Program (FY 2020-2021 UPWP) supports planning activities for the period of April 1, 2020 through March 31, 2021. Projects included in the current (2019-2020) UPWP that are not complete as of March 31, 2020 will be rolled over into the FY 2020-2021 UPWP.
The level of study for UPWP projects generally does not go beyond concept-level planning (UPWP funds cannot be used for property acquisition, site preparation, preliminary engineering, detailed design, operations and management, or construction projects). Projects must reflect the priorities and direction of the Region as represented by the goals and objectives of the Long Range Transportation Plan for the Genesee-Finger Lakes Region 2040 (LRTP 2040) to be eligible for UPWP funds.
The GTC UPWP Development Committee (UDC) – consisting of representatives from Livingston, Monroe, Ontario, and Wayne counties, the City of Rochester, New York State Department of Transportation, Rochester Genesee Regional Transportation Authority, and Genesee/Finger Lakes Regional Planning Council – has guided the development of the Draft FY 2020-2021 UPWP Project List.
All project proposals received by the October 18, 2019 deadline were reviewed by the UDC for responsiveness to the parameters and priorities identified in the Call for Projects. Every attempt was made to develop a balanced program of projects that is inclusive of as many of the responsive proposals as possible.
Below for your information and review is the GTC Draft FY 2020-2021 UPWP Project List. The list is available for public review from Monday, January 13, 2020 through Tuesday, February 11, 2020.
This document presents the projects considered and recommended for new funding through the FY 2020-2021 UPWP.
