For the East Side Highway EA, early coordination with stakeholders will be accomplished by following the Illinois Department of Transportation (IDOT) Context Sensitive Solution (CSS) approach to public involvement. CSS is an interactive public involvement process that engages the public, or stakeholders, throughout the project process. CSS involves working with stakeholders to develop roadways that fit into and reflect the project’s surroundings – its “context.” Stakeholders are involved in the decision making process with continuous involvement throughout the entire development of the project. Working with a diverse group of local and regional stakeholders to understand the needs and concerns in the study area leads to transportation solutions designed to improve the quality of life for those who rely on the transportation systems.
More information on the CSS process can be found here.
