How Will We Invest In Transportation For The Future?

What do you do when you have nearly 700 needed transportation projects costing over $27 billion and less than $6 billion in projected revenue to pay for them? You have to make tough choices. The North Florida Transportation Planning Organization is developing the 2040 Long Range Transportation Plan. In our first round of public meetings you told us your priorities. Based on that input and projected funding, we’ve developed a draft Cost Feasible Plan. Please come to a public meeting to see the proposed projects and alternatives. Then let us know how you want to invest. Transportation Plan Meetings
