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.


The next Public Meeting will be held on Tuesday October 14 in the Jacksonville Mall Center Court, the time is still being determined.  If you're out shopping that night or interested in viewing the recommendations stop by and see us! We hope to see you out there!  Get involved and help shape the future transportation system in our area! 


STI Locally Assigned Points

The Local Input Prioritization Methodology has been used to locally assign points to projects through the Strategic Transportation Investments (STI) law. The  preliminary assignment of local input points to the proposed Regional Impact and Division Needs has been completed.  On August 21, 2014 the Transportation Advisory Committee (TAC) signed a Resolution approving those locally assigned points. The Resolution recognizes that the final assignment of P3.0 Local Input Points has been made to enhance the greatest likelihood of future funding in the State Transportation Improvement Program (STIP) for projects that improve the mobility of our region.
