Appendix C: Driveway Design Guidelines

Anchor: #i1010356

Section 1: Overview

The purpose of this Appendix is to provide guidance on the design of driveway connections providing vehicular access to a highway on the state highway system. This Appendix governs the geometric design criteria for driveways.

Because field conditions are highly variable with respect to driveways, the guidance provided herein may not always be completely applicable. Therefore, departures from this design guidance for driveways to meet field conditions do not require or constitute a need for any type of design exception or design waiver as part of a State roadway project design plan; however, they may require support documentation in the form of traffic operations and safety analysis.Additional information can also be found in TxDOT’s Access Management Manual for permitting guidelines and for additional access discussion.
