Throughout the Oak Hill Parkway project planning process, the project team is incorporating a comprehensive approach to design development known as Context Sensitive Solutions (CSS). The project team’s intent by using this approach is to create a safe, efficient and environmentally responsible transportation corridor that is appropriate for its setting and speaks to the needs and values of the surrounding community.
What is CSS?: CSS is a collaborative, interdisciplinary approach involving stakeholders to develop transportation design and engineering solutions appropriate for the setting.
The Oak Hill Parkway will:
- Be a safe and attractive transportation corridor that visually and physically connects, at a human scale, destinations on both sides of the highway.
- Help create a unique place that functions well for all modes of transportation while integrating our history, aesthetics, and environment.
Good stewardship of our natural and cultural assets is a priority.
