Residents Encouraged to Take Transportation Survey

*This release is provided in partnership with the Metropolitan Washington Council of Governments. 

The National Capital Region Transportation Planning Board (TPB) is seeking public input for Visualize 2045, a new long-range transportation plan for metropolitan Washington. Residents can take the online Visualize 2045 survey by visiting www.visualize2045.org. The survey is available until Tuesday, July 31. 

Public input will help elected leaders and regional planners better understand public attitudes and opinion as they make decisions about the region’s transportation future. The survey asks participants about their travel patterns, how key transportation issues affect them, and their ideas for improving the region’s transportation future. 

Visualize 2045 is a new kind of long-range transportation plan for the National Capital Region. It will include projects and improvements for which funding is expected to be available between now and 2045, as well as those for which funding has not yet been identified. Visualize 2045 will highlight more than 1,000 regionally significant road and transit projects, hundreds of bicycle and pedestrian projects, and key land-use issues facing the region. 

Later this year, the TPB will hold a series of workshops and community events to learn more about people’s opinions and their ideas for the future. In late 2018, all input will be published as part of the final Visualize 2045 plan.

For more information, or to sign up for email updates, visit www.visualize2045.org.
