AASHTO Center for Environmental Excellence: best practices in context-sensitive solutions: 2005 competition

AASHTO's Center for Environmental Excellence sponsored the 2005 Context-Sensitive Solutions Competition to showcase exemplary projects, programs, and initiatives that achieve CSS principles. In February 2005, AASHTO sent a solicitation to all State Departments of Transportation seeking examples of efforts underway to integrate CSS principles with the planning and delivery of transportation projects, programs, and services. After careful review, our expert panel of judges selected one winner in each of three categories: best project, best program, and best in institutional change. These initiatives serve as models of the best innovations and collaborative efforts in the nation in achieving context-sensitive solutions for transportation projects and programs. The panel also selected seven additional initiatives they considered worthy of recognition as notable practices. CSS initiatives continue to advance along the continuum, from projects, to programs, to organizational integration. Transportation agencies and their partners are demonstrating that CSS is applicable across a range of efforts—from routine safety upgrades and emergency repairs to urban freeways and scenic byways. Innovative technologies, new materials, and process improvements are providing better options for integration of sustainable, environmentally friendly transportation solutions that can result in substantial cost savings.
