What to Expect When You’re Expecting a Bypass (Part 2)
The solution to transportation mobility needs on Florida’s Strategic Intermodal System (SIS) roadways in small- and medium-sized communities is increasingly a bypass. A bypass may impact land use and traffic circulation both directly and indirectly. Those impacts should be thoroughly analyzed and understood by the community, stakeholders, and the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT). This webinar will present the potential impacts of a bypass and offer practical enhancements to policy and practice. Enhancements address aspects such as land use, network connectivity, and livability resulting in a multidimensional approach to bypass planning and impact mitigation. Part 1 of this 2-part series equipped planners, decision-makers, concerned citizens, and others with basic knowledge regarding the impacts of proposed bypasses. In Part 2, FDOT staff, and consultants, local governments, and planning practitioners are provided with methods for assessing potential indirect land use impacts and recommendations for mitigating adverse impacts and enhancing positive impacts.
