Module D - Slide 25


If the curb ramp points toward the center of the intersection (top photo and illustration), this is what is termed an apex or diagonal ramp configuration. The ramp can be misleading to the alignment of a blind pedestrian. Points are given in the Prioritization Tool for an apex ramp configuration at either end of the crosswalk. On the other hand, ramps that serve individual crosswalks (bottom photo and illustration) can offer somewhat better directional cues and no prioritization points are added for them.
