L.K. NANDAM – FDOT DIVISION 1 SECRETARY and DE WAYNE CARVER, AICP
Context Classification, FDOT's new complete streets program FDOT will now build and fund projects which incorporate Smart Growth and Complete Streets principles. We need to thoroughly know and understand those principles. This conference will be presenting the state’s new, regulatory, complete streets program - Context Classification - its driving forces, planning and funding prioritization and the new FDOT Design Manual (FDM).
FDOT has undergone a profound systemic change. In a move away from the historic primacy of moving cars, which has led to widespread congestion and the highest rate of roadway deaths and injuries in the nation. With technical advisement from Smart Growth America, FDOT has customized a new complete streets program of transportation planning and design, entitled Context Classification and based on land use categories called Transects –land use categories developed by the Congress for New Urbanism.
Infrastructure design will be determined by documented current and future land use patterns. When fully phased in, this program will significantly impact all Florida regions and localities, with types of roadways and transportation infrastructure built and renovated reflecting the intended economic, social and demographic uses of the surrounding lands.
