The Five-Year Work Program is the product resulting from an ongoing process that prioritizes and funds upcoming transportation system improvements programmed over the next five years in accordance with Section 339.135, Florida Statutes. The Five-Year Work Program provides clear direction on what projects to program, where to build projects, when to build projects, and how to fund projects. The development of the Five-Year Work Program involves extensive coordination with local governments, including Metropolitan/Transportation Planning Organizations, city and county officials and input from citizens to select road, transit, and enhancement projects that maintain and improve safety, reduce congestion, and increase mobility. The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) has been granted authority by the Florida Legislature to commit and expend funds on projects in the first year of the Five-Year Work Program. The last four years of the work program are included for planning purposes.
The Tentative Five-Year Work Program
includes projects scheduled for Fiscal Years 2021 through 2025 (projects programmed July 1, 2020 through June 30, 2025). After the public comment period ends, the Tentative Work Program is reviewed by the Florida Legislature and the Governor and adopted by the State Secretary of Transportation on July 1, 2020.
