Agency Challenges to Integrating Context Sensitive Solutions; Summary of Sessions 17 and 22 Held in Conjunction with the 2006 ITE Technical Conference

At the Institutes of Transportation Engineers' 2006 Technical Conference and Exhibit, two sessions explored Agency Challenges of Integrating Context Sensitive Solutions. This paper is a summary of these two sessions.

AASHTO recently surveyed its members to establish a baseline for CSS implementation. Forty - five state DOTs responded to a question about barriers to the implementation of CSS. Respondents identified the following challenges to CSS implementation: resistance to change (56%), a perceived higher cost (42%), clear understanding of CSS (40%), and liability concerns (16%). Each of these barriers raises interesting questions.

At the Institutes of Transportation Engineers' 2006 Technical Conference and Exhibit, a panel explored these and other challenges in two related sessions called Agency Challenges of Integrating Context Sensitive Solutions. In the first session three panelists presented their perspectives and examples of this integration. The second session was a roundtable discussion where participants asked questions and shared experiences. This paper is a summary of these two sessions.
