Merrimack Valley Metropolitan Planning Organization (MVMPO)


The MVMPO makes decisions about how federal transportation funds will be used in the region for planning, construction, transit services and more.  With input from community officials, members of the public and transportation advocates, the MVMPO implements the regional transportation planning process for the Merrimack Valley region.  We are responsible for developing the three federally mandated transportation planning documents- Transportation Improvement Program  (TIP), Regional Transportation Plan (RTP), and Unified Planning Work Program (UPWP) – which guide how federal transportation funding will be spent in the region in order to achieve regional goals.  We undertake transportation analyses, provide technical assistance to member communities and assist the Merrimack Valley Regional Transit Authority (MVRTA).
