TABLE 1.4 (ENGLISH) (CONTINUED)
MATRIX OF DESIGN VALUES – COMMUNITY ARTERIAL
1
12' preferred for regular transit routes, and heavy truck volumes > 5%, particularly for design speeds of 35 mph or greater. A 1' to 2' offset to the curb
is desirable. 14' for an outside lane with no shoulder or bike lane, if optimal accommodation for bicyclists is desired.
2
Shoulders should be installed in urban contexts only as part of a retrofit of wide travel lanes to accommodate bicyclists.
3
Paving for railroad grade crossings shall extend 2' beyond the extreme rails for the full graded width of the highway.
4
Design of bike lanes should be considered when identified as part of the Engineering & Environmental (E&E) Scoping process.
5
Curb Return radius should be as small as possible. Number of lanes, on street parking, bike lanes, and shoulders should be utilized to determine
Matrix of Design Values - Notes (Community Arterial)

effective radius.
6
Cross slopes of 3.0% are recommended for design speeds less than 40 mph.
7
In curbed areas with longitudinal slopes of 1% or less, 3.0% cross slopes may be used on tangents.
8
The Maximum superelevation rate is 8% for Rural conditions and 6% for Urban conditions.
9
Where pedestrian traffic is anticipated, provisions for a sidewalk should be considered and shall meet the Department's Standards and requirements
(see Chapter 6 and Design Manual, Part 4, Part B, Section 2, Article 2.3).
10
For long bridges over 60 m (200 ft) in length, offsets (shoulders) to the parapet, rail, barrier or curb shall be at least 1.2 m (4 ft) from the travel lane on
both the left and the right.
11
Recommended minimum grade of 0.75% on curbed sections.
12
The Roadside design values should be considered and implemented as feasible and reasonable; however, Chapter 6, Pedestrian Facilities, should
still be used for minimum design criteria. ADA accommodations must be addressed in accordance with ADA policy.
13
Buffer is assumed to be planted area (grass, shrubs and/or trees) for suburban neighborhood and corridor contexts; street furniture/car door zone for
other land use contexts. Minimum of 6' for transit zones.
14
Center piers are not desirable. Increase bridge span where necessary to provide for required horizontal stopping sight distance. Provide clearance for
guide rail in front of substructures if protection is required.
15
The procurement of sufficient right-of-way width should be based on the preferable dimensions for all the elements of the composite highway cross
section and should be adequate to accommodate the construction and proper maintenance of the highway throughout the project. Future widening
should be considered and, where needed for safety, additional right-of-way may be required for adequate sight distance. For additional information on
right-of-way widths, refer to the 2011 AASHTO Green Book.
16
Where parking lanes are provided on the approaches, consideration should be given to extending the parking lanes across the bridge.
17
If the conditions listed on the form in Chapter 1, Appendix A, Reduced Bridge Width Criteria Documentation are met, the minimum bridge width may
equal the width provided in Table 1.12.
