Who’s developing the plan?

Visualize 2045 is being developed by the National Capital Region Transportation Planning Board (TPB), the federally designated metropolitan planning organization (MPO) for metropolitan Washington.

The TPB is made up of elected officials representing 23 county and city jurisdictions in the region. The board also includes representatives of the three state departments of transportation (DOTs) and the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority (WMATA), which operates the Metro system. 

The TPB’s official planning area spans more than 3,500 square miles across Northern Virginia, suburban Maryland, and the District of Columbia. The region is home to more than 5 million people and a broad diversity of travel needs.

The TPB is housed at and staffed by the Metropolitan Washington Council of Governments. COG is an independent, nonprofit association where area leaders address regional issues ranging from transportation to the environment to public safety to homeland security.
