 Summary:
 Context sensitive highway design includes public involvement, to the maximum extent, into highway design process, particularly in early stages of a project. The modern trends in highway designing require the balance between meeting the traffic demand and road safety, as well as the needs of local inhabitants. A special attention must be given to the aesthetics and the preservation of existing ambiental areas. Constraints imposed by the environment require sometimes a derogation from official regulations for highway design, and then additional measures to eliminate the negative impact on road safety are applied.
