Context Classification Workshop
Miami-Dade County, FL
FDOT District 6
Completed in 2018
Fostering Community Support
The Florida Department of Transportation adopted a Complete Streets Policy in September 2014. To advance and implement the policy, the Department developed a set of context classifications to guide the planning, design, and operation of state roadways so that these facilities can support the needs of all users based on their contexts. The FDOT Context Classification handbook was adopted by the Department in August 2017.
In support of the various Department efforts to share about their Complete Streets initiative and the new Context Classification System, FDOT District 6 facilitated a workshop in Miami-Dade County to help further inform and collaborate with regional partners and local agencies, as well as other transportation industry professionals on this topic. As part of the Kittelson & Associates Team, Urbe Studio staff led the overall coordination and preparation of materials necessary to conduct this workshop.
The workshop format was planned to include an upfront presentation followed by interactive table exercises for participants to apply the context classification methodology. The audience for the session included representatives and/or staff from municipalities, the Miami-Dade Transportation Planning Organization (TPO), Miami-Dade Department of Transportation and Public Works, and other key local agency partners.
