Thread: Curb cut regulations

  1. #1

    Curb cut regulations

    My boss is the county executive of a major NY State County. He wants to make sure that developments are assessed for their "traffic safety" impacts before they are given their permits and constructed. His basic idea is to make the county department of transportation responsible for "permitting" the construction of curb cuts on public streets, so that their location can be accepted or other traffic improvements can be made first (traffic signals, blinkers, signage, etc.). Does anyone know of another county (or city) that does this? We are interested in passing new legislation, so if anyone has a guide, I would love to use it as a base. . .

    Curb cut regulations


    The Center for Urban Transportation Research (CUTR) has some guidelines you may find useful. Check out their website at:


    Look under "Research & Programs" for "Ten Ways to Manage Roadway Access in Your Community." It won't give you any direction into permitting processes, but it will provide good principles for establishing guidelines or regs.

    Good luck
