In 2015, FDOT embarked on a journey to change the way we think about our transportation system. Spurred by the 2014 adoption of our Complete Streets Policy and concurrent with revisions to the Florida Transportation Plan, the Department engaged SmartGrowth America to facilitate a series of Complete Streets-focused workshops. The workshops included a selection of external partners
as well as FDOT. Representatives from local and regional governments, industry trade groups, developers, and other experts had seats at the table and participated fully in the discussions and revelations of the workshops. The meetings
made it clear that a 21st Century FDOT had to change "business as usual" practices to put context first. As FDOT Secretary Jim Boxold likes to put it, we have to put the right street in the right place. The days of "one size fits
all" design are over.
