FY 2024 UPWP What is the UPWP?

The BRTB’s Work Program & Budget is known as the Unified Planning Work Program (UPWP) for Transportation Planning. It is a federal requirement that details projects, studies and other activities to be completed by BRTB members, staff of the Baltimore Metropolitan Council (BMC) and consultants.

The draft work plan, known as the Unified Planning Work Program (UPWP), budgets $10,710,000 for fiscal year 2024. 

Projects proposed for the fiscal year 2024 UPWP include:

  • Analyzing changing trends in employment, commercial real estate and housing, with an eye on potential long-term implications for land-use, travel demand and other aspects of development in the Baltimore region.
  • Creating recommendations for improving viability of transit-oriented development in the Baltimore region.
  • Developing best practices for implementing, operating and funding micro-transit in the Baltimore region.
  • Identifying ways to coordinate development of affordable housing and improved transportation networks in the Baltimore region.
  • Assessing various inspection programs for traffic signal infrastructure and conducting field inspections to establish baseline conditions of traffic signal infrastructure in the Baltimore region.

Members of the public are encouraged to share comments on the UPWP by Thursday, March 9. BRTB members will vote on adoption of the fiscal year 2024 UPWP at meeting on Friday, April 21, and will consider all comments before voting.
