Planning Work Program

NMDOT Two-Year Planning Work Program

The Planning Work Program (PWP) is a two-year document, developed in accordance with 23 CFR 420.111, that outlines the work to be accomplished by the NMDOT, the Metropolitan Planning Organizations (MPOs) and Regional Transportation Planning Organizations (RTPOs) over two consecutive federal fiscal years (FFYs). The Planning Division, consisting of the Multimodal Planning and Programs, Data Management and Research Bureaus, is the lead Division responsible for administering the PWP, which is funded by Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) funds and state or MPO/RTPO match. FHWA funding in the two-year PWP primarily includes State Planning and Research (SPR) funds, Metropolitan Planning (PL) funds and Local Technical Assistance Program (LTAP) funds apportioned to New Mexico in Fixing Americas Surface Transportation (FAST) Act enacted on December 4, 2015. National Highway Performance Program (NHPP) funds and Surface Transportation Block Grant Program (STBGP) funds are sometimes included in the Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) work programs.

The 2023-2024 PWP is a single file, and includes Planning Division activities, Multimodal Planning and Programs Bureau activities, Data Management Bureau activities, Local Technical Assistance Program, Research and International Work Program, and SPR Part A Projects in Other Areas of NMDOT.

MPO Unified Planning Work Programs and RTPO Region Work Programs are available on the MPOs’ and RTPOs’ websites, which are linked from the Multimodal Planning and Programs webpage.
