Roadway Design / Roadway Criteria / Bicycle and Pedestrian Facilities
Welcome to the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) Bicycle and Pedestrian Facilities website. Here you can learn more about Florida's bicycle and pedestrian facilities, easily navigate related internal and external websites and contact your FDOT District Bicycle and Pedestrian Coordinator.
FDOT is a de-centralized agency and most programmatic decisions are made at the District level. Each District Bicycle and Pedestrian Coordinator is responsible for working with city and local governments, various Metropolitan Planning Organizations, and individuals within the District on related pedestrian and bicycle issues. The Statewide Bicycle Pedestrian Coordinator, located in the central Roadway Design Office in Tallahassee, works with and through the FDOT District Coordinators.
For information regarding this program or website content, please contact our Statewide Bicycle Pedestrian Coordinator, Mary O'Brien, by email at Mary.OBrien@dot.state.fl.us
