Aesthetics and Context Sensitive Solutions
Context Sensitive Solutions (CSS) is a collaborative approach to developing aesthetics for roadways that fit within their surroundings. It incorporates public input to determine what natural, historic, environmental and social resources best enhance the roadway design.
TxDOT has gathered public input about CSS features along the corridor in conjunction with several Loop 360 project workshops. To learn more about what we heard, and see the CSS features that will be incorporated into the Loop 360 projects, click on the links below.
Diverging Diamond Interchanges
Diverging diamond interchanges are proposed for intersections with a high volume of left-turning traffic. DDIs allow vehicles to travel more quickly through an intersection by temporarily shifting traffic to the left side of the road. This allows through-traffic and left-turning traffic to proceed through the intersection simultaneously, eliminating the need for a left-turn arrow. To help drivers navigate, DDIs are designed with overhead signs, pavement markings and traffic signals.
