Welcome

This is the TPB's documentation of the Financially Constrained Long-Range Transportation Plan (CLRP) for the National Capital Region.

The CLRP identifies all regionally significant transportation projects and programs that are planned in the Washington metropolitan area between 2014 and 2040. Over 600 projects are included, ranging from simple highway landscaping to billion-dollar highway and transit projects. Some of the projects will be completed in the near future, while others are only in the initial planning stage.

The projects and programs that go into the CLRP are developed cooperatively by governmental bodies and agencies represented on the National Capital Region Transportation Planning Board (TPB). The TPB Vision, the policy framework adopted by the TPB in 1998, serves as the regional guide for project development.


Learn more about transportation decision-making in the Washington region, including the state and local decision-making that feeds the CLRP update process. Visit the Transportation Planning Information Hub for the National Capital Region.
