Instructor -Edward A. Patton, P.E.
The Context Sensitive Solutions (CSS) process incorporates the FHWA emphasis on the joint use of transportation corridors by pedestrians, cyclists and public transit vehicles (AASHTO 2001 Policy of Highways and Streets 2001). Designers should recognize the implications of this sharing of the transportation corridors and are encouraged to consider not only vehicular movement, but also movement of people, distribution of goods, and provision of essential services. Participants will gain an understanding of the key core components of employing a flexible design approach. The seminar will utilize case studies that have won FHWA awards and will have the opportunity to work with instructors who have been key contributors in the success of those projects.
