On May 1st, 2020, Tia Boyd, Research Associate with CUTR’s Planning and Corridor Management Program, served as a panelist at the American Planning Association’s National Planning Conference.

The presentation, Risk-Based Transportation Planning for Uncertainty, highlights findings from a recently completed project evaluating the Florida Transportation Plan (FTP) and risks to the future of transportation in Florida.

Commissioned by FDOT, the project was completed independently by three universities: the University of South Florida, Florida State University, and the University of Florida. Tasks for this project centered on risk identification, consequence identification and management strategies, planning implications including tools that inform the planning process, and the implications of risk on planning and project implementation.

Each panelist presented a specific aspect of their research findings. Tia’s presentation described a sample risk register developed specifically to evaluate potential risks to the future of transportation in Florida as framed by the seven 2015 FTP goals.

 The full conference presentation and session highlights are available on the American Planning Association’s website:
