Stephan - Thanks for your response that the design can appear to be a narrower path, but have reinforced shoulders in case emergency access is needed.. One of the reasons this decision is such a struggle for us is that the end of our pedway that meets the car road is at a fairly steep slope. The original plan, approved by the city/county, includes a retaining wall at this point. If we want vehicle access through this route, we'll have to solve the erosion/runoff issue through the design in another way and may have to go back through permitting. We also have a limited amount of impervious surface allowed for the whole development. Using it for a wider roadway could possibly limit future projects. (The approval is for a 5 ft wide path.) Our design was approved by our local government with an open peripheral road and a closed central pedway. Our group is exploring the option of redesigning to allow vehicle access on the pedway and I posted my earlier questions to try to find out how important, or not, different groups had found central vehicle access. I'd love to have more responses - I'm forwarding the ones I've already gotten and we're having quite a lively discussion about it. -Jessie Handforth Kome Eno Commons Durham, NC Where I'm trying to build a hurdy-gurdy from a kit.
