The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) is currently updating the Florida Transportation Plan (FTP). Federal planning codes and regulations (23 USC 135(b) and (23 CFR 450.208(a)(1) and 450.214(f)) provide that statewide planning be coordinated with metropolitan planning in the state. Toward that end, the FDOT requested research assistance from the Center for Urban Transportation Research (CUTR) at the University of South Florida (USF) in identifying transportation priorities of Florida’s metropolitan planning organizations (MPOs) and understanding actions taken by the MPOs to advance the goals and objectives of the 2025 FTP. Specifically, CUTR researchers: Reviewed and summarized Florida MPO long range transportation plan (LRTP) goals, objectives and planning priorities Assessed the status of transportation-related planning products produced and activities performed by regional groupings of MPOs Generally evaluated the status of the stated actions contained in the adopted Florida MPO Advisory Council (MPOAC) 2025 FTP implementation action plan.
