2060 Florida Transportation Plan Regional Workshops

The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) is holding a series of 12 regional workshops around the state to obtain public and partner input on the future of transportation in Florida as part of development of the 2060 Florida Transportation Plan (FTP).

There is a workshop scheduled in Fort Myers on Tuesday, June 8th from 1:30 - 4:00 p.m. at the SWIFT SunGuide Center on 10041 Daniels Parkway (which is inside the I-75 Rest Area off Daniels. enter from Daniels and take a right to the new gray building in the back).

The FTP establishes long range goals that will provide a policy framework for expenditure of federal and state transportation funds in Florida. The FDOT is updating this plan to respond to new trends and challenges to meet the future mobility needs of Florida's residents, visitors and businesses.

This is a prime opportunity to provide input on active transportation, and the livability issues connected to transportation. Support for TOD projects, rail, policies that support complete streets, and a focus on safety are at issue. This is the opportunity to move transportation planning from an autocentric and mobility focus to a vision based on access as the primary goal of transportation.

So, mark your calendars and plan to attend this workshop.
