The following drawings are included to illustrate basic designs for a residential driveway entrance. Existing features at or near the site need to be considered. Selection of the driveway location should be based upon available sight distance, the location of other entrances (existing or proposed) in the immediate area, and must be approved by SHA. In general, the "depressed curb" type entrances are to be used along closed section (curbed) highways. The "open section" driveway apron shall be used on roadways without curbing.
