Context-Sensitive Solutions Strategic Plan for Illinois Department of Transportation

In 2003, legislation (Public Act 93-0540) was enacted requiring the Illinois Department of Transportation to embrace the principles of Context Sensitive Solutions in policies and procedures for the planning, design, construction, and operation of its projects for new construction, reconstruction, or major expansion of existing transportation facilities. In response to this mandate from the Governor and General Assembly, IDOT developed a Strategic Plan for CSS. The purpose of this paper is to discuss how IDOT utilized the Balanced Scorecard management approach and engaged a Department wide effort to embrace the principles of CSS focusing on policies and procedures, training, program delivery, and communication. This paper is also intended to share the lessons learned by IDOT during this process. This may help other DOTs implement CSS within their organizations.
