The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) has recently published their newly updated Transportation Impact Handbook.
FDOT has developed these guidelines to assist FDOT staff in their review of developments. While this handbook is primarily for FDOT staff, it is available to local governments and other transportation partners in an effort to communicate the FDOT’s guidance for reviewing various documents. The purpose of this document is to guide the professional through the current generally accepted professional practice. This should assist in making better decisions for the study of the transportation impacts of new developments.
KAI is very proud to have had a key role in updating this handbook on behalf of DOT Districts in southern and central Florida.

Connecting the Region with Transit is a guidebook that was recently developed through a partnership between FDOT District 5 and the East Central Florida Regional Planning Council. This guidebook is intended to be an idea book for local governments that are looking to implement Central Florida's 2050 Regional Growth Vision. As such, it includes examples of innovative, Vision-supportive practices that currently exist in the Central Florida region as well as ideas from outside Florida. The guidebook was designed to be graphics-oriented and visually interesting so that it can be readily accessed and understood by the planners, elected officials, and other parties who play a role in implementation of the Vision.
