The Financially Constrained Long-Range Transportation Plan: Performance Analysis, MWCOG, December 19, 2012

This performance analysis of the constrained long-range plan (CLRP) highlights that there will likely be little change in the way people travel in the Washington metro region and, as a result, even greater congestion on the region's roadways and crowding on rail transit.  The one relative bright spot is a continuing reduction in vehicle air pollution, a result stemming largely from improved auto technology since the growing population and jobs will generate more vehicle trips.  Unfortunately, climate warming carbon dioxide emissions will continue to grow, if slowly.
