February 23 | 10:00-11:30am: In this webinar, we will talk about the purpose of data collection for a Safe Routes to School program and we will provide an overview of the data available to analyze walking and bicycle usage, safety, and infrastructure. Attendees will learn about interactive mapping tools, GIS, and other online portals that can help provide the information needed to develop policy campaigns, grant applications, or other proposals to advance SRTS.
June 2nd and 3rd: The Florida Department of Transportation will host the 2022 FDOT Transportation Symposium June 2-3 at the Hilton Orlando. The theme for this year is “A Focus on the Vital Few Safety Initiatives”.
FDOT uses its Florida Local Technical Assistance Program (LTAP) to improve the skills and increase the knowledge of local and transportation workforces on roadway safety via training and technical assistance. The Florida LTAP Center is proud to be the recipient of an Honorable Mention at the 2021 Roadway Safety Awards.
Take our survey!
The Florida LTAP Center annual needs assessment survey intends to collect information on training and technical assistance needs and preferences from transportation agencies statewide. It should only take about 10-15 minutes of your time to complete this survey. Your input is critical to ensure that the training and technical assistance we provide meets the needs of local agencies. This survey is open to transportation professionals working at an agency in Florida.
FHWA has launched a one-stop-shop Local Road Safety Plan (LRSP) website, with a goal to make it as personable and intuitive as possible to emulate in-person training in a virtual environment.The LRSP website uses a delivery method to simulate a personal, hands-on workshop experience to guide agencies through the LRSP development process including identifying stakeholders, using safety data, choosing proven solutions, and implementing solutions.
The Florida LTAP Center anticipates resuming some in-person trainings later this year. Currently we continue to offer all of our training via remote instruction. For the latest updates, please visit our COVID-19 Updates page.
