Welcome to HEPMPO

The Hagerstown/Eastern Panhandle Metropolitan Planning Organization (HEPMPO) is the federal and state designated regional transportation planning body for the urbanized areas in Berkeley and Jefferson Counties in West Virginia, Washington County, Maryland and a small portion of Franklin County, Pennsylvania. The HEPMPO coordinates the federally mandated transportation planning process in the Hagerstown-Martinsburg Urbanized Area, a designation resulting from the 1990, 2000 and 2010 Census.

The HEPMPO’s mission is to provide a cooperative forum for regional collaboration, planning and public decision-making for short and long-term solutions that support mobility needs, economic development, environmental sensitivities, and multimodal connectivity for a safe, secure and efficient transportation system.

An important part of this planning process is the public's participation in developing short and long term goals for the regional transportation system. We invite you to search our website, review the information, and provide us with your feedback regarding transportation issues facing the region today and in the future.
