Long-Range Visioning Session to Kickoff FTP/SIS Update
The Future of Transportation in Florida event was held at the Omni in Jacksonville, Florida on May 6 and 7, 2019. This event featured the Vision Zero Workshop and the Long-Range Visioning Session.
The Vision Zero Workshop, co-hosted by the Federal Highway Administration and FDOT, was an interactive opportunity to coordinate and align Vision Zero initiatives throughout the state to support the goal of a fatality-free transportation system. It also served as the launch of the Florida Strategic Highway Safety Plan refresh. The workshop participants considered new strategies and how to reinforce current strategies, including the 4 Es (engineering, enforcement, education, and emergency services) and beyond. Metropolitan planning organizations, regional planning councils, traffic safety officials, transportation mode representatives, and local government planning officials participated in the two half-day workshop.
The Long-Range Visioning Session, hosted by FDOT, was the kick-off to the 5-year update of the Florida Transportation Plan, the long-range transportation plan for all of Florida. This session included interactive group activities to identify goals for Florida’s future, and considered trends, system performance, emerging technologies, resilience, and other potential disrupters affecting transportation in Florida. Safety organizations, metropolitan organizations, regional planning councils, local government planning officials, transportation mode representatives, environmental groups, economic interests, and anyone else interested in the future of Florida were among the attendees during the half day session. Members of the FTP-SIS Steering Committee participated as well.
