Unified Work Program

The Unified Work Program (UWP) is prepared annually to direct day-to-day work of the Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO). It lists the transportation planning projects and budget of TCRPC staff. The Peoria Pekin Urbanized Area Transportation Study (PPUATS) oversees the work of the projects listed in the UWP. 

Previously Obligated Projects

The MPO is required by Federal regulations to publish an annual listing of obligated projects for which Federal funds have been given in the preceding year.  This report helps provide increased transparency of government spending on transportation projects and strategies to state and local officials, and to the general public. In order to realize this federal objective, a proactive approach to sharing information with the public in a user-friendly format has been provided in this report.
