The Communications Office plays an integral role in telling the department’s story. The Office is responsible for keeping the public, transportation stakeholders, media, and staff updated on FDOT projects, initiatives, partnerships, and educational campaigns. FDOT has communications staff in each district office throughout the state who work to collectively communicate the department’s message.
Through publications like reference guides, maps, and project literature, FDOT impacts and serves all Floridians and visitors, informing them about a broad range of transportation issues. Tailored to the needs of each audience, these publications explain how the department is organized, who to contact, key responsibilities, transportation financing, and the design and construction process.
Response to Inquiries and the General Public
Assisting with timely responses to inquiries from the press and public as well as taking an active role in the public involvement process are crucial functions of the Communications Office team.
