About

This is a complex project that requires a redesign of the roadway layout to fix the current sidewalk issues. This infographic shows the changes that the roadway design will undergo. There are four different breakouts because each segment requires a different type of fix.

Curb shift

Although there are a number of considerations when taking a curb shift into account, in this circumstance the amount of pavement space must be reduced and a curb shift must take place.

In order to accommodate the minimum requirements needed to reconstruct sidewalks that meet ADA standards, the sidewalk slope has to be extended into the current pavement layout. A curb shift is the only way to feasibly accommodate that.

Sideview of what the reconstructed profile would look like. It shows how the new sidewalk has to be moved in on the shoulder to fix the slope of the current sidewalks.

A curb shift is required for this project. This cross section shows how the new slope (in blue) needs to be extended out towards the driving surface.
