FDOT is changing the way we plan our roads! In 2014, the FDOT State Secretary signed a Complete Streets Implementation Policy, which is a key component of improving pedestrian and bicyclist safety and providing truly context sensitive solutions to the community. The policy highlights an approach to transportation planning that connects land use and planning by “building the right road in the right place for the right purpose”.
We will be working with our agency partners and local communities to find ways to make sure state roads fit in to the community context, support local needs, and still achieve mobility goals. The policy, as well as a Complete Streets Handbook will be integrated into other FDOT guidance such as the Florida Greenbook and FDOT’s Plans Preparation Manual.
