Based on review of traffic data since March 2020, FCDOT determined that traffic count data collection resumed January 4, 2022 for County-level Comprehensive Transportation Analyses (CTA). This does not apply to traffic impact analyses submitted in accordance with Chapter 870 requirements. There has been an appreciable increase in traffic volumes today compared to March 2020 when traffic counts were halted. Retail and other uses that were previously closed or operating at a limited capacity, are now fully operational with a few exceptions. Schools were in session in Fall 2021 and many commuters have returned to the office. FCDOT acknowledges that the traffic volumes today may still be lower than pre-pandemic; however, volumes have normalized to a point where reasonable baselines can be established. FCDOT will continue to monitor trends and external factors and reserves the right to modify these guidelines as new information warrants.
- Traffic Counts may begin January 4, 2022 for CTA
- Traffic Counts may occur only when the approved scoping document permits
- This guidance may change as the situation evolves and new information is provided
