The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) plays an important role in maintaining mobility for the future on Strategic Intermodal System (SIS) Corridors throughout the state. By defining the corridor's needs, the corridor plan will help focus planning efforts on the most significant problems and act as catalyst for discussion about how best to invest in the corridor. A Planning Study is the first step in planning for the future of a transportation facility.
Planning studies determine the best way to serve existing and future travel demand. The studies identify the transportation issues by closely examining the existing and expected future conditions within each study area; including the design of the existing transportation facilities, transit services available, accommodation of non-motorized modes of transportation, traffic volumes, levels of congestion, and potentially unsafe conditions.
