Welcome to the District One 2025-2029 Tentative Five-Year Work Program

Each year, District One FDOT works closely with the six local metropolitan and transportation planning organizations and regional entities to identify and develop priority projects. The process and partnerships stabilize the Department’s work program and help us maintain Florida’s transportation system for our residents, businesses, and visitors.
