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. Operational and design changes associated with Lane Repurposing that promote safety include reduced vehicle speeds, as well as reduced vehicle-pedestrian conflicts, -bicycle, and -vehicle conflicts.
This webinar will cover the Lane Repurposing concept and benefits, as well as 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).

As an active team member of the Systems Implementation Office, she has contributed to the success of the Quality and Capacity Level of Service, Lane Repurposing, Access Management, and Transportation Site Impact activities as well as our growing role in the institution of the Highway Safety Manual into our planning activities.
Gina is a member of the Transportation Research Board. She is currently a panel member on the National Cooperative Highway Research Program. Recently she was a panelist for Project 15-64 Guidelines for the design of unsignalized median openings in close proximity to signalized intersections. Also, Project 17-74 Application of Crash Modification Factors for Access Management, and the most recent Project 03-120 Multimodal Corridor Access Management Analysis Guide.
