27:1B-21.19. Context sensitive design
6.Many State highways run through fully developed cities and suburban towns. In addition, many small villages in rural areas have State highways which pass through built-up residential areas or village centers. The traffic on many of these State highways, particularly large truck and speeding traffic, prevents these residential areas, town centers and future town centers from functioning as intended. The commissioner shall study this issue and develop a departmental program which authorizes context sensitive design and examines the functional classifications of State highways running through developed cities and suburban towns. As used in this section, "context sensitive design" means a planning technique that embraces a collaborative, interdisciplinary process and recognizes the uniqueness of the community in planning transportation projects.
