Lane repurposing projects, also known as “Road Diets,” is a way to reassign roadway space to achieve other purposes such as economic development, safety, and mobility for all users. Operational and design changes associated with Lane Repurposing that promote safety include reduced vehicle speeds, reduced vehicle-pedestrian conflicts, reduced bicycle, and -vehicle conflicts. This Webinar will cover Lane Repurposing concept, benefits, the alternatives analysis, and the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) Application and Review Process. The Webinar will also cover resources like the Lane Repurposing Guidebook and Chapters 126 and 102 from the FDOT Design Manual (FDM).
