Long Range Transportation Plan (LRTP)

The LRTP is updated every five years and establishes a list of cost-feasible transportation projects and programs for the next 25 years. The 2045 Plan forecasts travel demand and identifies projects and services to efficiently move people and goods through the year 2045. It maps out the next 25 years of state and federal transportation system investments in Palm Beach County and includes Strategic Intermodal System (SIS) projects identified by FDOT, major highway, transit and freight projects identified by the TPA Board, the Local Initiatives Program (LI) and the Transportation Alternatives (TA) Program.

Transportation Improvement Program (TIP)

The TIP allocates funds to projects from the LRTP over the next five years. It identifies projects for maintaining and improving the transportation system funded by Federal, State and local sources in order to assist local governments with their transportation planning efforts.

Unified Planning Work Program (UPWP)

The UPWP is updated every two years and is the agency’s budget and application for Federal transportation planning funds. It includes a description of the planning work and resulting products, schedules, cost and funding sources.

List of Priority Projects

The TPA annually adopts a list of transportation system priority projects from the LRTP and transmits the list to FDOT for use in developing the next draft Five-Year
Work Program and TIP. The TPA Priority Projects are consistent with the goals, objectives and values of the TPA’s adopted LRTP and further the TPA vision of creating a safe, efficient, and connected multimodal transportation system.

Regional Transportation Plan (RTP)

The RTP identifies the most significant transportation investments needed to meet growing travel demands throughout the Southeast Florida region (Palm Beach, Broward and Miami-Dade counties). The RTP is facilitated through the Southeast Florida Transportation Council (SEFTC) and is included in the TPA’s LRTP.
