1080.00 TRAILS, WALKWAYS AND MAINTENANCE PATHS
1081.00 Concrete Trails, Walkways and Maintenance Paths
All sidewalks and maintenance paths within the parks, open space, or greenbelts, which could be utilized by the general public for conveyance, will be a minimum of eight (8) feet wide and six (6) inches thick concrete and shall have fiber mesh included in the mix. The concrete shall have minimum twenty-eight (28) day compression strength of four thousand (4,000) pounds per square inch (PSI) and shall meet all applicable requirements of Section 400.00, Concrete Work, of these STANDARDS AND SPECIFICATIONS.
1082.00 Soft Trails
Soft trails will conform in accordance with the Standard Drawings unless otherwise approved by the Assistant to the Town Administrator-Community Services or designee.
1083.00 Trail Specifications
1083.01 Location of Trails
To the extent possible, trails should be located, configured and set back from natural creeks or bodies of water so that recreation use will not significantly impact native plant and animal habitat, or be damaged by high water events.
1083.02 Alignment of Trails
Trails should be generally sinuous in nature, avoiding overlong and straight runs greater than 300 feet. A two foot (2’) change from centerline, alternating from side to side every one hundred feet (100’) is the standard used by the Town.
1083.03 Width of Trail Corridor
Spaces used to accommodate trails should be generally no less than three (3) times the width of the trail and shall accommodate development of Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) compliant trails.
1083.04 Requirement for Flared Ends at Intersecting Trail Connections
At each trail intersection, there shall be a flared end to assist maintenance vehicles, pedestrians and cyclists in navigating the turn. At ninety (90) degree intersections, a three foot (3’) flare shall be placed. For more information, see the Stand Detail sheet which shows this requirement. If not clearly shown on approved construction drawings, trails which intersect at an orientation other than ninety (90) degrees will be field-fitted to create an appropriate flared trail connection.
1083.05 Crusher Fines Specifications
Crusher fines shall be gold or grey colored, depending upon project requirements. 100% of crusher fines are to pass through a ¼” screen; no larger material shall be included within the crusher fines mixture. The mixture should be approximately 25% pebbles (screen sizes >#4 and <#10); 35% grit (screen sizes >10 and <100); and 40% dust (screen sizes >#100 and <#270). Vendor must supply a material sample for approval by the Assistant to the Town Administrator-Community Services or designee, as well as a written composition analysis showing the sieve size and amount of material retained within each sieve.
1083.06 Use of Stabilized vs. Unstabilized Crusher Fines
Normally, unstabilized crusher fines are adequate for most trail applications. However, if pathway (or a portion of the pathway) is to be located within an area that is subject to a 1% or greater probability of flooding in any one year (100 year flood plain or greater), than polymer-stabilized crusher fines are to be used. Suitable polymers include Soiltac, StaLoc, and NaturalPave (or equivalent). Vendor must supply a material sample for approval by the Assistant to the Town Administrator-Community Services or designee, as well as a written composition analysis showing the sieve size and amount of material retained within each sieve, as well as the polymer content. Petroleum-based polymer products are unacceptable and will be rejected.
1084.00 Types of Trails
1084.01 Spine Trail
Spine Trails consist of a wide concrete trail (8’-10’) with an attached crusher fines trail (4’). In areas with low water conditions that may experience regular flooding, or turf areas that are permanently irrigated, a ten foot (10’) or wider concrete trail may be substituted for the standard spine trail configuration of a concrete trail with an attached crusher fines trail.
A. A.1. Shoulders maximum slope 1:6.
A.2. The cross slope across travel surface shall not exceed 2%.
B. Soft surface width – 4’ crusher fines with geo textile fabric underlayment.
B.1. Shoulders must be a minimum width of 2’, with up to 6’ preferred.
B.2. Slope along the direction of travel not to exceed 5%.
