The Florida Transportation Commission (FTC) on Monday agreed to a five-year transportation work program from the Florida Department of Transportation and will submit a review of the plan to Gov. Rick Scott.
“We are pleased to submit the tentative work program report to Gov. Scott and members of the Florida Legislature for their review,” said Chairman Ron Howse in a statement. “The commission looks forward to the continued enhancement of transit and the constant dedication to safety that the work program’s 6,987 projects will provide to residents and visitors traveling in Florida.”
FDOT’S Tentative Work Program directs the next five years of engineering, construction, public transportation projects, and turnpike and rail projects in Florida.
The program totals $38.7 billion, with $32.3 billion allocated for product and product support (construction, right-of-way, freight logistics and passenger operations), as well as 762 new miles of roadway, resurfacing of 7,345 miles of existing roadway, repair of 190 bridges and replacement of 76 bridges.
