1 DIVISION 5 SITE ACCESS/DRIVEWAYS This section pertains to the site access roads and driveways of private properties, accessing the street system of the City of Lynden. Access points are low volume intersections and should be designed consistent with the intended use. The standards as set forth in Division 4 - STREET DESIGN STANDARDS apply to site access roads and driveway unless modified in. 5.1 General A. Access to State Highways is regulated by the Washington State Department of Transportation (WSDOT). The Guide Meridian and Badger Road are classified as State Highways. The Applicant desiring access to a State Highway is responsible to coordinate with WSDOT for satisfactory completion of any requirements. B. Access to City Roads is regulated by the City of Lynden through one or both of the following permits: 1. Encroachment Permit 2. Building Permit No construction, relocation or reconstruction of access points, driveways, or related improvements will be allowed without one of the above required permits, which shall be obtained prior to beginning any work within the right of way. C. Property owners abutting roadway rights-of-way are normally allowed access to the roadway unless their access rights have been limited by plat restriction or State law. However, even where the property owner is allowed access, the physical design of the driveways shall be controlled by the City to maintain the safety and efficiency of the public roadway. D. Multi-family residential development of more than four units per lot shall be considered commercial development insofar as access point standards are concerned. E. A Traffic Impact Analysis may be required as outlined in Section Number of Access Points The standard number of access points for a development giving access to an abutting arterial street are: 1. Residential property uses: one two-way access point or two one- way access points. 2. Commercial or industrial property uses: one two-way access points per 500 feet of total property frontage. Page 1 of 6

2 Additional access points may be considered by the City provided a traffic engineering study or circulation plan is submitted to the City indicating that more than the maximum number of access points permitted are required to adequately handle access point volumes, and will benefit the traffic flow on adjacent roads. The requirements of this section are not intended to override the need for a secondary access for emergency vehicles if such access has been determined by the Fire Marshal to be necessary under the provisions of section of the Uniform Fire Code. 5.3 Location of Access Points A. Where a property has frontage on more than one roadway, access will generally be limited to the lowest volume roadway where the impacts of a new access will be minimized. Access onto higher volume roads may be denied in the interest of traffic safety or in order to lessen congestion on the higher volume road. B. Access points shall be aligned wherever possible with existing access points on the opposite side of the street. If this is not possible, a separation between the nearest edges of such opposite access point shall conform to Section 5.4 and Section Access Point Separation A. Where access points serving residential properties, the minimum distance between nearest edges for non-arterials must be at least 10 feet. Where access points serving residential properties, the minimum distance between nearest edges for arterials must be at least 50 feet. When residential property frontages are narrow, such that minimum access point spacing criteria cannot be met, it may be necessary to require joint access locations at property lines. B. Where two or more access points serve the same or adjacent commercial or industrial property uses, the minimum access point spacing for non-arterials is 75 feet. Where two or more access points serve the same or adjacent commercial or industrial property uses, the minimum access point spacing for arterials is 200 feet. C. The distance is measured between the nearest edges of the access points as shown in Figure 5-1. D. In cases where access point spacing is not attainable because existing frontages are narrow, the owner of the parcel shall make good faith attempts to secure joint Page 2 of 6

3 access through an adjoining parcel or access parcel from another street. If this is not possible, access points shall be located as close to the required values shown above as possible while maintaining proper corner clearance. Table 5-1 Minimum Access Point Separation, feet Residential Commercial Industrial Arterials Non-Arterials Corner Clearance from Intersection A. Corner clearances from access points for all uses fronting a non-arterial road shall be a minimum of 50 feet. B. Corner clearances from residential access points fronting an arterial road shall be a minimum of 50 feet. Corner clearances for commercial/industrial access points, fronting an arterial road with signalized intersection control shall be a minimum of 275 feet. Corner clearances for commercial/industrial access points, fronting an arterial road with stop sign intersection control shall be a minimum of 135 feet. C. In cases where corner clearances are not attainable because frontages are narrow, access points shall be located as close as practicable to the property line most distant from the intersection. At such locations, the City may require investigations to substantiate whether left turns should be prohibited into or out of the access point. D. Access points near stop or signalized intersections shall be designed to minimize stopped vehicles from blocking the access point. Table 5-2 Minimum Corner Clearance from Intersection, feet Residential Commercial Industrial Arterial Signalized Intersection Control Arterial Stop Sign Intersection Control Non-Arterial Page 3 of 6

4 5.6 Traffic Signals The City may require the installation of a traffic signal at the cost of the owner of a parcel to control the ingress and egress of traffic from the project in accordance with an approved traffic study. A signal may be required either at the time a driveway permit is applied for or after a traffic study demonstrates the need. 5.7 Sight Distance All access points giving access to arterial streets shall be constructed in such a manner that the following minimum sight distances are available along the arterial in each direction from the access point: 5.8 Widths Design Speed, mph Minimum Sight Distance, ft greater than 35 as determined by WSDOT A. For residential access points, the minimum driveway width is 14 feet and the maximum width shall be 30 feet. B. Commercial or industrial access points shall have minimum width of 25 feet fronting a non-arterial, and 30 feet fronting an arterial. C. The maximum two-way access point width shall be 40 feet for commercial property uses and 50 feet for industrial. D. The maximum one-way access point width for residential shall be 14 feet. Wider commercial or industrial widths may be approved by the City where a substantial percentage of oversized vehicle traffic exists. In this case, the access shall be sized to accommodate the largest design vehicle likely to use the access with considerable frequency. Pavement shall extend from the back of sidewalk a minimum distance of 50 feet toward or into the lot. 5.9 Access Point Angles All access points shall intersect public roads at a 90 degree angle or as close to 90 degrees as topography permits, but in no case shall be less than 70 degrees. Page 4 of 6

5 5.10 Access Point Design Commercial/industrial and residential access points shall be constructed in accordance with Figure 5-2. The design of the access point must take into consideration the percentage of truck traffic utilizing the access point. Drainage patterns must also be taken into account in the design of access points. Curb returns at driveway entrances may be used for commercial and industrial properties. A continuous concrete gutter section shall be constructed through the driveway between curb returns unless catch basins are provided at one or both curb returns as required to prevent surface flow through the intersection Vertical Alignment of Access Points A landing area shall be provided, beginning at the cement concrete curb and gutter and extending for the following width: Residential driveway Commercial / Industrial 20 ft. min 30 ft. min The pavement slope within the landing area shall not exceed 2.0%. Site access shall be graded to match into possible future widened road section without encroachment into graded shoulder or sidewalk. The design engineer for the proposed developments shall consider the access driveway profile when designing the serving road to ensure that required grade transitions can be complied with considering building set back and lot terrain conditions Grades Access point grades beyond the landing area shall not exceed the following grades, measured from the pivot point between the intersection with the landing area: Residential driveway / accessing Non-arterial Residential driveway / accessing Arterial Commercial or Industrial / accessing Non-arterial Commercial or Industrial / accessing Arterial 15% Max. 7% Max. 8% Max. 5% Max Left-Turn, Acceleration, Deceleration Lanes Left-turn, acceleration, and deceleration lanes may be required as part of a development proposal, based upon the results of a Traffic Impact Analysis. See Section Construction of Access Points A. Access point approaches shall be constructed in accordance with Figure 5-2. Access approaches must extend from the curb to the back of sidewalk. Access point is to be surfaced with Class 3000 cement concrete, 6 inches thick. Page 5 of 6

6 B. When an opening for an access point is to be constructed through an existing portland cement concrete vertical curb, the existing curb, or curb and gutter shall be saw cut at the limits of the work or removed to the nearest construction joint and the opening replaced with standard curb and driveway. C. Prior to commencing any necessary removal or relocation of any public utilities, structures, trees, or plantings due to construction of an access point, the applicant/developer must secure approval from the person or persons having ownership or control of such facilities or features. D. When sidewalk crosses access points or driveways, sidewalks shall be six inches, Class 3000 concrete. In commercial or industrial applications with bus and traffic the sidewalk depth shall be increased to 8 inches Maintenance Maintenance of driveway approaches or access roads shall be the responsibility of the legally responsible owner(s) whose property they serve.
