The National Capital Region Transportation Planning Board (TPB) is seeking public input on its draft 2014 fiscally Constrained Long Range Plan (CLRP). Click here to review the full draft CLRP and leave your comments.
A recent TPB newsletter claims the plan contains, “More than 300 regionally significant improvements to the Washington region’s highway and transit system through 2040.”
The left column below lists some of the projects the TPB considers to be among the most regionally significant. The right column lists projects of arguably greater regional significance that are not in the CLRP.
