Visualize 2050 Comment Opportunity: March 1 – 30, 2024

From March 1 – 30, 2024, the public had the opportunity to comment on an important, major element of the proposed National Capital Region Transportation Plan, Visualize 2050. Feedback was requested on the region’s proposed roadway and transit projects that change the transportation network’s capacity and are thus determined to be regionally significant in relation to the attainment of federal air quality standards.

A summary and presentation of comments received during the March comment period is available on the April 17 TPB Board meeting page (Item 9B). For audio of the Visualize 2050 overview and discussion, click on the April 17 livestream starting at the 1:28:15 mark.
