Context sensitive solutions in designing major urban thoroughfares for walkable communities - factsh

The publication provides a resource for practitioners working in the challenging practice of urban thoroughfare design. The principles are based on the evolving practice of context sensitive solutions (CSS), which integrates CSS principles into existing processes to facilitate informed decision-making that considers the needs, interests and constraints within a project. The publication describes: • The importance of integrating the principles of CSS in urban roadway improvement projects, • How CSS principles can be used in the transportation planning and project development processes, and • Specific guidance on thoroughfare cross-section and intersection design.
