The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) highly values the specific request of RVers. The RV industry is estimated to be worth between 25 to 30 billion dollars in America. According to the RV Industry Association (RVIA), one in ten families owns an RV, and 44 million Americans are preparing to go RVing this summer. Many of them are choosing Florida as their residence. According to official estimates, the Sunshine State is experiencing rapid population growth, with 2.8 million new residents expected by 2030.
As the number of residents increases, so does the number of vehicles on the roads. Consequently, the network of roads and highways expands, with wider lanes, new overpasses, and traveler support services. Over the years, the American Interstate system has developed to cover over 75,600 kilometers (47,000 miles), forming a network that includes 610,000 bridges, over 500 tunnels, and transports 11.9 billion tons of goods annually. Interstates are designed to allow Americans to travel from south to north and from east to west. From Florida, one can reach Canada and, through California, Mexico. Travelers journey across miles-long bridges, such as the one from Miami to Key West.
Florida‘s two major arteries, which connect to numerous other highways, are I-75 and I-95. Both originate around Miami, at the southern tip of the state, corresponding to the southernmost region of the United States. The two Interstates are 2,875 kilometers (1,786 miles) and 3,071 kilometers (1,908 miles) long, respectively, crossing six states for the former (Florida, Georgia, Tennessee, Kentucky, Ohio, and Michigan) and a staggering 16 for the latter (from Florida to Maine).
