We hope you will find it useful and informative.WW is the Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) for the Parkersburg, WV-Marietta, OH urbanized area which oversees the use of Federal Funds for transportation projects.
The WWW designated study area expands beyond the urban area boundary to encompass all of Wood County, West Virginia, and portions of Washington County, Ohio, including the townships of Newport, Marietta, Fearing, Muskingum, Warren, Dunham and Belpre. Initially, Wirt County, West Virginia was included in both the Metropolitan Statistical Area (MSA) and the transportation planning study area. When the Census Bureau excluded Wirt County from the MSA during the 1980 census, the county was eliminated from the study area. However, the official name of the organization remained the same.
