That’s Nice…How do you do CSS?

  • Maintaining NEPA Intent

  • CSS asks about the purpose & need of a transportation project, then addresses equally:

    • Safety

    • Mobility

    • Preservation (Aesthetic, historic & cultural, environmental & other community values)

  • Context Sensitive Solutions involves a collaborative, interdisciplinary approach in which citizens & agencies are part of the team

What's Next in the Process?

  • We have removed the Engineers bias of always thinking we know the answer by:

    • Allows for Identifying the Context of the Project

    • Visioning creates branches of importance which;

  • Gives us “Purpose and Need”
