Adopting CSS: The Florida Greenbook
Wednesday, July 10, 2013 @ 2:30PM - 4:00PM EDT
This webinar explores Florida’s experience integrating design flexibility and context sensitivity from planning through final design. In May of 2011, the Florida Department of Transportation revised their Manual of Uniform Minimum Standards for Design, Construction and Maintenance for Streets and Highways, commonly referred to as the Florida Greenbook. The addition of Chapter 19: Traditional Neighborhood Development adopts a context sensitive approach to transportation and land use as standard practice, focusing on network functionality and design standards that support communities.
FDOT District One Secretary Billy Hattaway discusses Chapter 19 and explains how CSS is essential to diverse projects from maintenance to major construction, in settings both urban and rural. Florida’s experience provides clear direction for other states striving towards safety and livability outcomes in a 21st Century transportation system.
