Context Sensitive Solutions


DDOT shall commit to the advancement of Context Sensitive Solutions (CSS), also known as Context Sensitive Design (CSD), in all transportation projects. CSS seeks to improve the environmental quality of transportation decision making by incorporating CSS principles in all aspects of planning and the project development process.

CSS is a collaborative, interdisciplinary approach that involves all stakeholders in developing a transportation facility that fits its physical setting and preserves scenic, aesthetic, historic, and environmental resources while maintaining safety and mobility. CSS considers the total context within which a transportation improvement project will exist.
