Transportation and Historic Preservation:
The Road to Affordable Context Sensitive Solutions.
Do Context Sensitive Solutions truly make transportation projects more costly?
Please join us for a one-day gathering that will answer that and many other questions,
a symposium presented to advance the collaborative, interdisciplinary dialogue occurring
today in transportation planning. Context sensitive solutions (CSS) in transportation
design emphasize projects that fit physical settings and preserve scenic, aesthetic,
historic, and environmental resources, while maintaining safety and mobility.
Current fiscal constraints pose new challenges to transportation policy makers,
engineers, community planners, landscape architects, environmentalists, and heritage
resource advocates who seek to achieve these goals. Panel presentations and
discussions will be led by experts from a broad range of fields and will focus on topics
ranging from techniques for identifying community values, methods of economic analysis,
the staffing of multidisciplinary CSS design teams, current legislative initiatives,
ongoing training programs, and important case studies involving diverse projects
including village centers, urban neighborhoods, bridges, and rural landscapes.
