FDOT Complete Streets

Following its adoption of a Complete Streets Policy in Sep. 2014, the Florida Dept. of Transportation (FDOT) released its Complete Streets Implementation Plan in December 2015. FDOT's policy and guidance provide additional tools for state and local agencies to design roads that are safer for users of all ages and abilities including pedestrians and bicyclists in addition to motorists. In addition to safety, Complete Streets designs will promote quality of life, enhance property values, encourage physical activity and reduce negative environmental impacts. For more information about FDOT's Complete Streets efforts visit: www.FLCompleteStreets.com
