Unified Planning Work Program

The Planning Work Program outlines work tasks and responsibilities for the various agencies participating in the transportation planning process.

Planning the future of transportation in the Jacksonville urban area

The Jacksonville Urban Area Metropolitan Planning Organization (JUMPO) is the regional transportation planning agency for the New River region of southeastern North Carolina. JUMPO is composed of officials from the City of Jacksonville, Onslow County, and area military installations as well as the North Carolina Board of Transportation. JUMPO facilitates a cooperative, comprehensive and continuing transportation planning process that serves as the basis for the expenditure of all federal transportation funds in the area for streets, highways, bridges, public transit, and bicycle and pedestrian facilities.


The 2040 Long Range Transportation Plan draft report has been released for public review. The plan includes both long-range and short-range strategies/actions that provide for the development of an integrated multimodal transportation system (including accessible pedestrian walkways, bicycle transportation facilities, and public transit) to facilitate the safe and efficient movement of people and goods in addressing current and future transportation demand. You may view the plan on the JUMPO 2040 LRTP Website.  


The final public meeting was held on Wednesday, February 25, 2015.  The plan is under public review through March 30, 2015. Comments, questions or concerns can be sent to Peggy Holland at pholland@jacksonvillenc.gov or 910-938-5073.

The draft Metropolitan Transportation Improvement Program (MTIP) for FY 2016-2025 has been released for public review.

You may access the draft MTIP here or by visiting the JUMPO office at City Hall.

 Sneads Ferry Community Plan: Draft Report

The Sneads Ferry community is facing growth pressures from a variety of angles. In recognition of the need for long range land use planning and a coordinated transportation strategy, Onslow County and the Jacksonville Urban Area Metropolitan Planning Organization are partnering on a balanced planning process that blends future transportation needs with a realistic land use vision. Over the past few months the staff of Onslow County and JUMPO have been reviewing and fine tuning a draft report suitable to release to the public. That draft report is now available on the plan's website.
