Learn Your Multimodal Score: A Quick Guide

Come explore and use the tool that FDOT developed to identify corridors that are already fostering needs for multimodal travel or have challenges related to accommodating multimodal travel. Using land use, community and transportation factors, this tool can be used to identify and prioritize bike, pedestrian or transit investments.

FDOT Complete Streets: A Context-Based Approach to Connecting Communities

Come learn how FDOT is incorporating context-based design into how we plan, design and operate our state transportation system. We are embarking on a new direction – one that fosters community building by creating a context sensitive system of Complete Streets. Complete Streets will promote safety, quality of life, and economic development by serving the transportation needs of transportation system users of all ages and abilities. Come learn how to define your place (Context Classification) – from Rural and Rural Town to Urban Core and see how our updated design criteria will help to nurture each place.

When: September-08 from 8:30 am - 09:45 am
Presenters: Mary Taylor Raulerson & DeWayne Carver, AICP


Exploring the Full Menu Before Going on a Road Diet

As Downtown Orlando continues to evolve into a 24-hour place, demand for more mobility options is increasing. Come learn how FDOT and the City of Orlando is working together to explore how one street can support historic neighborhoods; provide access to businesses, schools, and a regional park; and function as a gateway to Downtown. Facing some potentially contentious neighborhood challenges and seemingly disparate stakeholder needs, FDOT’s Robinson Corridor Study utilized innovative data analytics to inform problem identification, alternatives evaluation, and thoughtful decision making. The data-driven processes led to better understanding and dialogue among partners and community members.

When: September-08 from 10:00 am - 11:15 am
Presenters: Jason Burton, AICP CNU-A LEED-AP, Heather S. Garcia, Jane Lim-Yap, AICP PP LEED
