Good morning everyone,
Is anyone willing to look up the requirements in the above publication for railings on a bridge intended to carry pedestrian and bicycle traffic only?
AASHTO’s Standard Specifications for Highway Bridges, 16th edition, requires a minimum height of 54 inches and that the railing assembly such that a 6 inch sphere will not pass through any opening (between the riding surface and 27” above it) and an 8 inch sphere will not pass through any opening (27” above the riding surface). AASHTO’s Guide for the Development of Bicycle Facilities, 1999, states only that railings should be a minimum of 42 inches high.
Thanks for your help. Happy Thanksgiving to everyone.
Troy Madlem, P.E.
