“A ‘one-size-fits-all’ design philosophy is not Departmental policy...”

“This guidance allows for flexibility in applying design standards and approving design exceptions that take the context of the project location into consideration; which enables the designer to tailor the design, as appropriate, for the specific circumstances while maintaining safety.”

- from Caltrans Highway Design Manual (HDM), Chapter 80
