Figure 8C-7. Examples of Placement of Pedestrian Gates
This figure illustrates two examples of placement of pedestrian gates.
Both examples show the two right lanes of a horizontal divided roadway from a horizontal broken line indicating the centerline of the median strip left of the traffic lanes to beyond the sidewalk on the right of the lanes. A legend shows a black arrow indicating the direction of travel in the lanes.
In both examples, two vertical light rail transit tracks are shown crossing the roadway at a right angle. The pavement under and on both sides of the tracks is shown as a contrasting pavement color or texture. Black arrows show both traffic lanes traveling from right to left. The lanes are shown separated by a broken white lane. To the right of the tracks, a vertical white stop line is shown extending across both lanes. Narrow vertical rectangles with vertical black and white stripes are shown indicating pedestrian and roadway gates. Two pairs of short horizontal black arrows joined by a short horizontal black line are shown to the right of each sidewalk indicating gate supports. Dotted lines indicating fences are shown on both sides of the tracks extending from the outside edge of the sidewalk and running parallel to the tracks. The fences are shown as a dimension of 43 inches MAX. high.
The first example shows the gate support behind the sidewalk. The sidewalk is shown between the roadway and the gate support. To the right of the tracks, the symbol of a combined pedestrian and roadway gate is shown extending across both the sidewalk and both traffic lanes. To the left of the tracks, a symbol for a shorter pedestrian gate is shown extending across only the sidewalk.
The second example shows two gates instead of the combined pedestrian and roadway gate. To the right of the tracks, a gate support for a short pedestrian gate is shown to the right of the sidewalk, with the gate extending across the sidewalk. Between the sidewalk and roadway, a green verge is shown. A gate support for a longer roadway gate is shown in the middle of the verge, with the gate extending across both traffic lanes. To the left of the tracks, a symbol of a pedestrian gate is shown extending across only the sidewalk.
