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 Long Range Transportation Plan establishes goals, identifies needs, sets investment priorities, and outlines an action plan for the future transportation system. The document is currently being updated and has a dedicated website.


Public input is essential to creating a document that reflects a communities needs, if you weren't able to stop by on Tuesday October 14 please visit the website to review the recommendations and submit your comments.  Check back for information regarding the final public meeting or join the mailing list to stay up to date! 

Statewide Transportation Improvement Program

In early December, NCDOT released the Draft 2016-2025 Statewide Transportation Improvement Program (STIP).The STIP is a multi-modal document that inlcudes highway, transit, bicycle, pedestrian, aviation, ferry and rail projects. The projects from the STIP that could potentially be inlcuded in the JUMPO Metropolitan Transportation Improvement Program (MTIP) can be viewed here as a map and here as a spreadsheet. The MTIP will be available for public comment by late winter. For additional guidance on several of the projects from the draft STIP the powerpoint from the December 11, 2014 TAC/TCC joint meeting is avaible for download.
