Get Involved (Visualize 2050)

The TPB began the process of updating the region’s National Capital Region Transportation Plan in February 2023. As we prepare for Visualize 2050, public comment opportunities will be available in 2023 and 2024.

March 1 – 30, 2024, is the next opportunity for public comment. Details on how to comment will be shared on this site on March 1.


Visualize the Region’s Transportation Future

Public Comment
Next Visualize 2050 Comment Opportunity: March 1 – 30, 2024

From March 1 – 30, 2024, the public will have the opportunity to comment on a portion of the projects in the Visualize 2050 plan. Which projects? A regionally significant subset of transportation projects that may impact the attainment of air quality standards. Examples include projects that affect roadway or transit capacity such as roadway widenings, extensions, or lane reductions, new high-occupancy vehicle (HOV) or express toll lanes, and transit capacity expansion. 

Minor road, bicycle and pedestrian, or transit improvements are important to the region’s network and they make a difference when it comes to day-to-day connections. However, while considered in the overall Visualize 2050 plan, minor projects are not included in the air quality analysis and are not part of the March 2024 comment period.  

More information and an online comment form will be available March 1 – 30.
