Draft Florida 2060 Transportation Plan ready for public comments
The recommended draft 2060 Florida Transportation Plan (FTP) is ready for public comment
During 2010, the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) and its partners worked to update the Florida Transportation Plan (FTP). The 2060 FTP is a plan for all of Florida – including local, regional, and state partners who make decisions about future transportation investments.
The draft 2060 FTP is posted on the project website (click here to review). The 30-day public comment period begins today and goes through Monday, November 22nd. During the public comment period, the FTP will also be reviewed by the Florida Transportation Commission. When the public comment period ends, we will consider the feedback received and make revisions as appropriate. The revised final FTP will be forwarded to FDOT Secretary for adoption.
BikeWalkLee's quick review found that the draft plan doesn't include a commitment to complete streets, and doesn't have a strong enough commitment to pedestrian and bicycle safety. If BikeWalkLee supporters want these deficiencies to be addressed in the final plan, we need you to fill out the short survey online.
