Title: Safety on Florida Roads: The Target Zero Initiative
Speaker: Loreen Bobo, PE
Safety on our roadways has always been a priority for the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT). In the last few years FDOT has had a re-focus on safety because deaths are currently on the rise due to a combination of many factors. FDOT’s goal is zero, zero fatalities and serious injuries. Find out how FDOT is going to get to zero, and how you can help us get there.
Loreen Bobo, P.E. started her career with FDOT in 1999 as a Professional Engineer Trainee, eventually focusing on construction and maintenance as a Project Engineer and Project Manager. In 2012 Loreen joined the team to lead the $2.3 Billion I-4 Ultimate P3 Project as the Program Manager. In 2018, Loreen began serving as the District Five Director of Transportation Development, overseeing development in nine Florida counties. In June 2021, Loreen began her role as Safety Administrator for the new District 5 Office of Safety, ensuring the District’s focus on safety to support Target Zero. Loreen has a Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering from the University of Florida, and a Master of Science in Industrial Engineering from the University of Central Florida. When not focusing on Safety, Loreen can be found spending time with her family – likely on a baseball field or as a den leader for Cub Scouts, as her two boys keep her and her husband busy and active!
