The Wood-Washington-Wirt Interstate Planning Commission (WWW) is designated as the Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) for the Parkersburg, WV-Marietta, OH urbanized area. As the MPO, WWW serves as a transportation planning agency and forum for regional transportation decisions. 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 provides an official decision making body for continuing cooperative, and comprehensive transportation planning that results in plans and programs consistent with the requirements governing urban transportation planning under the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), Federal Transit Administration (FTA), West Virginia Code, and Ohio Code. The organization provides transportation planning input into a regional development plan that includes transportation planning projects and strategies that will support economic vitality, increase the safety and security of the transportation system for motorized and non-motorized users, increase the accessibility and mobility options available to people and freight, protect and enhance the environment, enhance the integration and connectivity of the transportation system, promote efficient management and operation, emphasize the preservation of the existing transportation system, promote consultation between the West Virginia Department of Highways (WVDOH), the Ohio Department of Transportation (ODOT) and non-metropolitan local officials, and promote coordination of human service transportation.
WWW is housed by our parent agency the Mid-Ohio Valley Regional Council (MOVRC).
