Where Do We Go From Here? Working with lead agencies/entities to implement policy directives Hiring full-time freight coordinators in each FDOT district Trade & Logistics education for FDOT & partners Developing design/engineering standards that more fully account for the movement of freight Folding freight project priorities into the Department’s Work Program Working with local & regional governments to develop more detailed area freight plans
Planning for Future Corridors Improve connectivity between regions and between Florida and other states/nations Coordinate long-range growth/transportation plans and visions
Corridors of the Future More options for personal travel Emerging technologies such as automated or connected vehicles Careful location and design to protect and enhance Florida’s environment and communities Co-location with energy, communications and other infrastructure
Future Corridors Northwest Florida Tampa Bay-Northeast Florida* Tampa Bay-Central Florida* Southeast Florida-Heartland- Central Florida Southwest Florida-Heartland- Central Florida * Concept Reports Complete
Other FDOT Planning Several Planning Efforts Are About To Kickoff – Florida Transportation Plan – Seaport/Waterway System Plan – Rail System Plan
