Community Transportation Meeting: FDOT’s Secretary (the head honcho) is coming to the 305

State Senator Jason Pizzo is hosting a Community Transportation Meeting on Monday, July 22nd from 1-4pm at FIU’s North Campus. Kevin Thibault, the FDOT Secretary, will attend. 

According to the 2019 Dangerous by Design report by Smart Growth America, Florida is the most dangerous state in the country for pedestrians and cyclists. In fact, 9 out of the 20 most dangerous metropolitan areas in the US are in Florida.

Florida is one of the fastest growing states in the country and more needs to be done by the FDOT to design our streets with safety, not speed, as our top priority.  Florida also desperately needs more mobility options and we need the infrastructure to support multi-modal transit alternatives. Let’s work with Senator Pizzo and Secretary Thibault to start changing Florida’s transportation paradigm. 

Please help spread the word about this meeting. Of particular interest to us will be an update about the ugly situation we have on Biscayne Boulevard. Hope to see you there!
