The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT), Florida’s Turnpike Enterprise (FTE), is conducting a Project Development and Environment (PD&E) Study for Florida’s Turnpike from Jupiter (Indiantown Road) to Okeechobee Road (SR 70), in Palm Beach, Martin and St. Lucie Counties, Florida. The project consists of widening the Turnpike within the project limits by adding general toll lanes and/or express lanes in each direction.
FTE identified the need to widen this portion of Florida’s Turnpike (SR 91) to add capacity that will accommodate future traffic volumes of freight and passenger vehicles linked to the projected growth in population and industry for the year 2045. Florida’s Turnpike is also a major evacuation route for Southeast Florida.
In recognition of Earth Month, South Florida Commuter Services (SFCS), a program of the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) is challenging South Florida commuters to use an alternate mode of transportation at least once in the month of April as part of the 2018 South Florida Commuter Challenge. The Challenge is a regional effort throughout Monroe, Miami-Dade, Broward, Palm Beach, St. Lucie, and Martin counties to encourage alternative mode use. We are asking local commuters to try one or more of the following: transit, carpool, walking, bicycling or teleworking.
Treasure Coast Regional Household Survey
To understand how far, how often and by what means Treasure Coast residents travel each day, so transportation planning agencies can evaluate how best to improve the transportation system to reduce congestion, provide more complete and desirable transit services, safer sidewalks and bicycle facilities.
All the residents in the region are welcome to participate. Invitations will be mailed out to 60,000 randomly selected households. All members of the participating households will be requested to record all of their travel activities for a 24-hour period during a typical weekday.
