Context Sensitive Solutions

Context sensitive solutions use a multidisciplinary, multijurisdictional, holistic approach to planning and development for transportation projects. This approach takes into account not only the transportation challenge to be solved, but also the community values and the setting (scenic, historic, aesthetic, and environmental). Examples of context sensitive solutions include the “complete streets” and “livability” concepts, which promote community planning that includes multiple modes of transportation and road designs that allow all road users to safely share their use.

This section provides guidelines and examples for applying context sensitive solutions.
