SR 50 Multimodal Corridor Study

KAI worked with Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) to develop a multimodal corridor plan to better accommodate multimodal travel along State Road 50, between the Florida’s Turnpike and the City of Clermont.

KAI did a thorough evaluation of current trip-making characteristics, which helped better define the challenges of accommodating both daily local trips and regional through trips along the corridor. Working with the stakeholders through one-on-one interviews and an interactive charrette process, KAI developed various land use and transportation options to illustrate the transportation implications of different land use scenarios. One option was more aligned with the ongoing trend of land development, while another provided an alternative land use pattern that better supported effective multimodal mobility.

The Study has been well-received by regional and local agencies, and has served as a venue for numerous in-depth discussions and educational presentations on how to integrate land use and transportation planning and decision-making. This project was recognized by the Lake-Sumter MPO for the MPO's Horizon Award for Exemplary Project of the Year for 2012.
