According to a Website sponsored by the U.S. Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), "Context Sensitive Design (CSD): Thinking Beyond the Pavement," CSD is a collaborative, interdisciplinary approach involving all stakeholders in developing transportation projects that fit into their physical settings, preserving scenic, aesthetic, historic, and environmental resources while maintaining safety and mobility. The CSD approach considers the total context for transportation improvement projects. This article explores the topic of whether CSD can successfully alter the way people think about transportation projects.
