state a fact about the project

This project built upon the ITE/FHWA Designing Walkable Urban Thoroughfares: A Context Sensitive Approach Recommended Practice and other context-sensitive solutions (CSS) resources to expand understanding of CSS principles and practices within the transportation community as a whole related to designing walkable urban thoroughfares. The outreach materials included two case studies, web briefings, an ITE Journal article, presentations at various conferences, update to existing Fact Sheets and the development of two additional Fact Sheets, and a report on CSS Performance Measures. The outreach materials are intended to raise the bar for CSS implementation nationally by increasing awareness and by identifying tools and techniques that can be used to successfully implement CSS in design of walkable urban thoroughfares.
