Annually, the Florida-Alabama Transportation Planning Organization (TPO) reviews the transportation priorities for the urbanized areas of the Florida-Alabama TPO region. Prioritizing these projects maximizes available resources on an annual basis when determining how to meet the greatest needs of the region.

These priorities are submitted to the Florida and Alabama Departments of Transportation for potential funding in the next five years. Projects are selected for funding based on local priority, funding availability, and project timing. There are several categories of funding for transportation projects and each category must be prioritized. To ensure transportation needs are being met, Florida-Alabama TPO needs the community's input!
The Florida-Alabama Transportation Planning Organization is the local, intergovernmental transportation policy board for Escambia and Santa Rosa counties in Florida and Orange Beach and the community of Lillian in Alabama. The board is comprised of local government officials who make decisions regarding transportation at a regional level. The Florida-Alabama TPO is required by state and federal law to establish a cooperative, comprehensive, and continuing planning process. The TPO also works to increase safety, security, accessibility, mobility, and connectivity for people and goods.
