Florida Department of Transportation LogoIn July of this year, Ms. Gina Bonyani joined us for a webinar on Lane Repurposing. A lane repurposing project, also known as a “Road Diet,” is a way to reassign roadway space to achieve other purposes, such as economic development, safety, and mobility for all users. This webinar covered the Lane Repurposing concept and benefits, the alternatives analysis, and the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) Application and Review Process. It also covered resources like the Lane Repurposing Guidebook and Chapters 126 and 102 from the FDOT Design Manual (FDM).

Due to the overwhelming popularity of the July webinar and the number of questions received, we have invited Gina Bonyani back for a special one-hour office hours session on September 12th. During this session, Gina will join us to answer some of the follow-up questions received about Lane Repurposing. Attendees will also have the opportunity to submit additional questions during registration.

Please note – We will NOT be providing certificates of completion or PDH certificates for this training.
