IDOT has been developing, over many years, methods for involving stakeholders in its decisions, and CSS policy looks to make this a regular process for important projects. The CSS approach would involve stakeholders early and often throughout the process, especially before major decisions are made. The information gained from partnering with stakeholders is then used by IDOT to craft an informed solution to the transportation issue. This informed solution should also be a consensus solution, between stakeholders and IDOT. To view, IDOT’s policy, please click here.
