The Florida Department of Transportation, District Seven has developed a strategic plan for freight mobility in the Tampa Bay region to support economic development and capitalize on the
new trade environment that includes the growth of the region as a distribution hub, the expansion of the Panama Canal, and the eventual opening of free trade with Cuba. The Strategic Freight
Plan includes a policy framework to guide the identification of investment strategies and roadway design that support the primary corridor function and are compatible with the land uses and
associated activities within travel corridors in the region.

    • Why are we doing this study?
      Freight mobility, safety and operations
      Economic development
      Position region for funding opportunities
    • Why are we doing this study?
      Trucks are everywhere
      Trucks are not going away
      Truck traffic is increasing

    • Why are we doing this study?
      Trucks contribute to congestion and reduced mobility for all
    • Why are we doing this study?
      However…
      …trucks have unique operating characteristics and needs.
      Addressing these needs will improve mobility for both trucks and autos.
