Category:619 Pavement Edge Treatment
|Shoulder Edge Ruts and Settlement Maintenance|
This safety treatment eliminates the vertical drop-off at the pavement edge, allowing drifting vehicles to return to the pavement safely. Vehicles may leave the roadway for various reasons and this sloped pavement edge treatment enhances drivers' opportunity to return to the roadway while maintaining control of their vehicle.
Criteria for pavement edge treatment are shown on Standard Plan 619.10 and are described in Sec 619 of the Standard Specifications. Quantities of pavement edge treatment are estimated at 100% of the potential edge treatment for the project based on the type of work being done. Edge treatment is listed on the "2B" sheets by location. Coordination with Construction and Materials is recommended.
