More CSS Information From The Federal Highways Administration

The federal government, through the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), is encouraging states to adopt the CSS approach to transportation planning and design.

The FHWA implemented, in 1997, a pilot project for CSS, using CSS techniques on transportation projects in five states across the country: Kentucky, Utah, Minnesota, Maryland and Connecticut. (Please visit the FHWA's CSS website for further details.) All of these states have since adopted the CSS approach in their transportation decision-making.

Currently, 43 out of the 50 states have some sort of CSS policy or program

The FHWA has published a guidebook for using the CSS approach and techniques. View the Federal Highway Administration's explanation and definition of CSS, "Flexibility in Highway Design."
