Welcome to the Wood-Washington-Wirt Interstate Planning Commission (WWW) home on the web. 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.
OHIO TRANSIT NEEDS STUDY
Join the Ohio Department of Transportation at one of five regional stakeholder meetings to help shape a long term strategy for the needs of Ohio's riders today and in the future.
Trends show there is a definite rise in the need for convenient, affordable public transportation to jobs, medical appointments, shopping and recreational activities. Our transit agencies are struggling to fund this existing service, let alone meet the increased demand. From light rail and bus service in large cities to rural van services, the Ohio Statewide Transit Needs Study has examined existing transit needs and drafted recommendations for better addressing them. We look forward to your input, comments and ideas!
