How To's and Frequently Asked Questions for Communities

What funding is available for highway beautification? Who pays for what? How are projects funded and selected?

Consistent with Section 334.044(26), Florida Statues, at least 1.5 percent of the amount contracted for construction projects shall be allocated by the department on a statewide basis for the purchase of plant materials. Decisions about individual projects are made by FDOT District Offices in cooperation with community leaders. Communities seeking funding for highway beautification should contact the appropriate District Landscape Architect.
