Allocation Categories

The Unified Transportation Program (UTP) currently includes 34 categories of highway projects. Many of the categories are established to match federal-aid program areas specified by federal law. The remainder are state-funded programs that target areas of needed work which either supplement or are not included in the federal-aid program.

For a summary of all UTP categories, see utpsum. A more detailed description of the categories and their characteristics is included in Chapter 5, UTP Categories.

The allocation of federal and state funds to the UTP categories is an essential step in the programming and scheduling process. This chapter includes a description of this funding allocation.
