    Unified Planning Work Program (UPWP)

    The Unified Planning Work Program outlines how state and federal funds will be used for transportation planning purposes by the Yakima Valley Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) and the Yakima Valley Regional Transportation Planning Organization (RTPO).  Each year the  Washington State Department of Transportation (WSDOT), Federal Highways Administration, and Federal Transit Administration, have emphasized areas they would like to see included in our work program.  The UPWP for 2010 is available here.  (Updated 4/4/2011).

YVCOG has drafted the next UPWP for state fiscal years 2012-13 (July 1, 2011 to June 30, 2013). A final version of this UPWP will be posted after review by WSDOT, FHWA, FTA and approval by the Yakima Valley MPO/RTPO Executive Committee. (Updated 04/15/2011)

Congestion Mitigation and Air Quality (CMAQ) Improvement Program

CMAQ funds are intended to improve air quality and funds must be spent in non-attainment or maintenance areas.  A non attainment area is an  area formally designated by the EPA as not meeting the National Ambient Air Quality Standards (NAAQS) as listed in the Clean Air Act.  A maintenance area is a location that was previously a non-attainment area but has since become in compliance with the NAAQS and has officially been re-designated to an attainment area by the EPA.  The metropolitan Yakima Valley area, in and around the cities of Selah, Yakima, and Union Gap, are currently designated maintenance areas for both Carbon Monoxide (CO) and particulates of 10 micrometers or less (PM10).  Below are Links to documents pertinent to the CMAQ Improvement Program.
