April 2021 TransPlex Web Series: Landmarks for Guiding Success – National View and Best Practice Awards
April 9 @ 9:00 am - 11:30 am
Take part in the conversation with national and state leaders as they discuss some of the most complex transportation questions, including:
- How has the national vision for our transportation future changed?
- How can we address economic growth, climate change, equity, and safety in our daily work?
- What is ahead for transportation funding?
As Florida’s population continues to grow, so do the demands placed on its transportation network. Because transportation is the center of our daily lives, improving safety, enhancing mobility, and embracing innovation are key to meeting our transportation demands. Equally important are how we address equity, economic growth, climate change, and, of course, funding. Such complex and timely topics call for a panel of experts who have the knowledge and experience to lend thoughtful and straightforward input on how to deliver solutions during these challenging times. Join us at this opening session where we’ll hear from national creative thought leaders on their reflections of these hot topics and the impact they might have on Florida’s and our country’s transportation future.
Following the opening panel, FDOT will present the annual Excellence in Transportation Planning awards. FDOT is proud to recognize superior accomplishments and effort by presenting our annual awards for Innovation in Transportation Planning Achievements in Florida. FDOT developed these awards to encourage innovation in planning, foster collaboration and partnerships, highlight outstanding planning achievements, and recognize creative planning techniques. Please join us, immediately following the opening session, as we recognize the nominees and present the award recipients for: Planning Professional of the Year, Planning Organization of the Year, and Planning Innovation of the Year.
