Welcome to the Wood-Washington-Wirt Interstate Planning Commission (WWW) home on the web. We hope you will find it useful and informative.WWW 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.


WWW invites you to read "Connecting Parkersburg to Pittsburgh by Rail-Trail: Bringing a World-Class Trail Network to West Virginia." This is a rail-trail feasibility study of the Industrial Heartland Trails Coalition’s Parkersburg to Pittsburgh Corridor which was published on April 24, 2018

FY 2018 Annual List of Obligated Projects

The Wood-Washington-Wirt Interstate Planning Commission (WWW) has prepared a list of projects that have received a federal authorization from the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) and Federal Transit Administration (FTA) for fiscal year 2018 (July 1, 2017 thru June 30, 2018). The listing has been developed in accordance with FHWA/FTA guidance that requires Metropolitan Planning Organizations (MPO)  prepare and make available for review projects from the previous fiscal year that received a federal authorization for implementation. A federal authorization constitutes a legal commitment from the federal government to pay for the federal share of a project cost obligation. The annual listing of authorized projects for the fiscal year 2018 is available for review by clicking here. Copies of the document can also be obtained at the WWW office located at 709 Market Street, Parkersburg, WV or by calling (304) 422-4993 ext. 125.
