Cross Slopes

Excessive cross-slopes make sidewalks unusable

We automatically collect the cross-slope and grade of every sidewalk by rolling the PROWAP cart along the best path of travel. Our software allows the identification and location of every section of cross-slope that exceeds the maximum 2.0%. Sidewalks that force a pedestrian to traverse driveway crossings confront mobility device users with severe and rapidly changing cross-slopes. The driveway flare can send them out into the street or cause them to tip over. These excessive cross-slopes make them unusable by many pedestrians with mobility impairments. PROWAP identifies cross slope issues along the best path of travel and specifically tags those caused by driveway crossings.
