The PDWP is a schedule of project planning, scoping and preliminary design work that will be conducted during the coming year. Click on the link in the box at right to download the latest PDWP (this file includes the latest amendments and modifications).
All projects scheduled for work in the PDWP were drawn from or referenced in NJTPA’s long-range plan. As such the projects reflect the goals and long-range strategy of the NJTPA for improving access and mobility in the northern New Jersey region. The PDWP covers the following phase of work:
- Concept Development – This phase identifies and compares reasonable alternatives and strategies that address the purpose and need statement and selects a preliminary preferred alternative (PPA)
At the conclusion of this project development work, projects become candidates for inclusion in the NJTPA Transportation Improvement Program (TIP). The TIP allocates federal funding to actually implement projects including the completion of final design, right-of-way acquisition and construction.
The PDWP is included annually as Volume V of the Unified Planning Work Program (UPWP), a document that summarizes the transportation planning activities of the NJTPA staff, its member agencies and other transportation agencies in the region.
More information on the PDWP, including how projects are selected for inclusion in the document, can be found in the PDWP introduction and in the introduction to the TIP found on the TIP page .
