Context Sensitive Solutions Research
Context sensitive solutions (CSS) is an approach to transportation design that places preservation of historic, aesthetic, scenic, natural environment, and other community values on an equal basis with transportation safety, mobility, economics, and maintenance. CSS research helps quantify the increased benefits of developing transportation projects using this process.
Effects of Transportation Corridor Features on Driver and Pedestrian Behavior, 2012
This research project is in progress. The final report will be posted when it becomes available.
This study will review, quantify and analyze current studies and practices regarding the impact and measurement of transportation corridor design features on traveler safety and economic vitality along transportation corridors.
Few defensible performance measures exist for assessing the user safety, public health, economic vitality, multimodal mobility and quality of life effects of various corridor design elements. This document represents the outcome of research efforts into the effects of transportation corridor design features on user behavior safety, the environment, public health and community economic vitality, and the creation of defensible performance measures.
The Effects of Transportation Corridor Roadside Design Features on User Behavior and Safety, and Their Contributions to Health, Environmental Quality, and Community Economic Vitality: A Literature Review, 2008
This literature review is the culmination of the first phase of a research study that aims to provide transportation agencies with information to facilitate more defensible measurement of the effects of corridor design features on the quality of life of the communities and rural environments through which they run.
