2045 Metropolitan Transportation Plan

The Sherman-Denison MPO is updating its long-range transportation plan this year, commonly known as the Metropolitan Transportation Plan (MTP). The MTP is updated every five years, as required by federal law, to plan for the area’s major transportation investments needed to keep up with our region’s growth and development trends. Moving Forward 2045 MTP will guide federal, state, and local funding over the next 25 years to address congestion and transportation needs in the North Texas region. The Plan will include roads, transit, active transportation options such as walking and biking, and also examine new technologies, travel strategies, and choices that maximize the use of current transportation infrastructure.

Draft 2020-2021 Unified Planning Work Program

The Unified Planning Work Program (UPWP) is the federally-required document that identifies transportation planning work tasks to be completed within the Sherman-Denison Metropolitan Planning Area. The UPWP covers a two-year period and follows the Federal Fiscal Calendar that runs from October 1 to September 30 on any given year.  The UPWP is broken down into five specific tasks:  Administration and Management, Data Development and Maintenance, Short Range Planning, Metropolitan Transportation Plan and Special Studies.  It consists of transportation planning projects for which federal assistance is sought for FY 2020 – 2021.

A public hearing will be held on June 25, 2019 to offer the public an opportunity to comment on the Draft 2020-2021 Unified Planning Work Program.  The Draft 2020-2021 Unified Planning Work Program can be found by clicking HERE.
