The Florida Department of Transportation, District I (FDOT), in collaboration with the Central Florida Regional Planning Council (CFRPC) supported by the Treasure Coast Regional Planning Council (TCRPC) staff, and the City of Lakeland, Florida (City), seek to study and implement ways to improve mobility, quality of life, and economic vitality along the South Florida Avenue (SR 37) corridor in Lakeland, Florida.  FDOT has a stated goal of promoting safety, the quality of life, and economic development in the State of Florida.    To implement this goal, the Department has put forth a policy to plan, design, construct, reconstruct and operate a context-sensitive system of “Complete Streets.”  FDOT has identified a need to conduct a “Complete Streets” public design charrette for the South Florida Avenue corridor to explore roadway, economic development, infill redevelopment, and public policy improvements.

The purpose of this study is to create a Master Plan to implement ways to improve mobility, quality of life and economic vitality along the approximately 1.8 mile South Florida Avenue corridor extending north from Pine Street south to Ariana Street.
