Visionary Student Concepts for Florida’s Future Corridors

The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) asked the University of South Florida, Center for Urban Transportation Research to engage transportation students in a creative visioning exercise relative to transportation corridors of the future. Three interdisciplinary student teams were formed to develop alternative visionary design concepts for a future corridor in Florida that addresses the following question: “What would a future corridor look like and how might it operate?” Students were asked to address the draft FDOT “Guiding Principles for Florida’s Future Transportation Corridors” and to consider the following:

a) a range of possible modal alternatives,
b) potential technological innovations,
c) opportunities and challenges associated with the concepts (e.g., social, environmental, economic),
d) how the concepts might differ across the various Future Corridors study areas (e.g., rural, transitioning, and urban areas; existing versus new corridors), and
e) trends that influence the concept selection (e.g., demographic, technological, etc.).

This webinar will briefly explain the process used to engage the students and then each of the teams will present their visionary design concepts for Florida’s corridors of the future. The project was made possible by a grant from FDOT. View Handout
