Identification of Tourist Flows in Florida to Support Development of Tourist Travel Module for FDOT Florida Transportation Model

The results of this project will enable Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) to better monitor and forecast traffic flow, evaluate alternative strategies for improving highway accessibility to potential and existing tourism products, evaluate potential strategies for improving visitor experiences as they travel through the state, and forecast problems or conflicts created by tourists and Florida residents. Continued use of a FLSWM poses a number of important limitations in terms of tourist oriented traffic flow, accidents, potential revenue and maintenance considerations. The results of this project will enable FDOT to: (1) better monitor and control traffic flow; (2) evaluate alternative strategies for improving highway accessibility to potential and existing tourism products; (3) evaluate potential strategies for improving visitor experiences as they travel through the state; and, (4) forecast tourist mobility constraints.
