Transportation Planning Studies
Notable Examples of FDOT Plans, Studies, and Processes
[Note: The following plans, studies, and processes are provided as examples only and should not be interpreted as standards or guidance.]
Florida Transportation Plan (FTP). The Florida Transportation Plan (FTP) is the single overarching statewide plan guiding Florida’s transportation future. It is a plan for all of Florida created by, and providing direction to, the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) and all organizations that are involved in planning and managing Florida’s transportation system, including statewide, regional, and local partners.
Lakeland Area Alternatives Analysis. The Lakeland Area Alternatives Analysis (LAAA) study will assist FDOT District One and its transportation partners (City of Lakeland, Polk County, Citrus Transit) in defining a program of context-based projects envisioned to improve all modes of transportation for safety, mobility, quality of life and economic development.
Central Manatee Network Alternatives Analysis. FDOT is partnering with Manatee County, the Cities of Palmetto and Bradenton, and the Sarasota/Manatee Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) in conducting the Central Manatee Network Alternatives Analysis (CMNAA) Study in Manatee County. The CMNAA study is defining projects that support mobility, safety, economic development, and quality of life goals shared by the partners. The goal of the study is to facilitate identification and construction (or implementation) of future transportation project alternatives and programs to provide study area residents safer and improved access to jobs, schools, shopping, and social services, and provide improved regional mobility.
I-95 Corridor Mobility Planning Project. For Southeast Florida to continue to grow and thrive, its residents, employees, and visitors need reliable access to destinations to meet daily and other needs without overreliance on I-95 and auto travel. Also, freight travel within and through the region needs to be efficient and reliable. A system-oriented, integrated approach to transportation and land use planning is needed to deliver the economic prosperity and connected, livable communities with expanded travel choices desired in the region. Through a Working Group of local governments and stakeholder agencies, the I-95 Corridor Mobility Planning Project addresses congestion on I-95 and broader mobility and land use issues in eastern Broward and southeastern Palm Beach counties in a holistic way.
SR 535 Corridor Study. FDOT District 5 is conducting a study of the SR 535 Corridor in Orange and Osceola Counties to develop and evaluate a wide-range of transportation improvements. These options include, but are not limited to, roadway widening, bicycle and pedestrian enhancements, safety improvements and other improvements based on existing and future traffic volumes.
US 1 Corridor Study, Coral Reef Drive to I-95. FDOT District 6 initiated a corridor study from SW 152 Street/Coral Reef Drive to Interstate 95, approximately 13 miles, in Miami-Dade County. The corridor study will analyze existing conditions to identify recurring congestion locations and evaluate multimodal transportation improvement needs based on future travel demand.
Heights Mobility Study. The Heights Mobility Study is an effort to improve safety and mobility in the Greater Seminole Heights/Tampa Heights area, especially, along the Florida Avenue and Tampa Street/Highland Avenue corridor between downtown Tampa and the Hillsborough River. Additionally, the Study Team will work with the community to develop a long term vision for transportation improvements in the area.
