SECURITY GATE AND DOORSWING APPEALS AFFECTING THE RIGHT-OF-WAY
Administrative Rule Adopted by Bureau of Transportation Engineering & Development Pursuant to Rule-Making Authority
ARB-TRN-8.05

 
MEMORANDUM
 
August 13, 1996
 
TO:  Chuck Stalsberg, Bureau of Buildings
 
FROM:  Bob Johnson, Transportation Engineering & Development
 
RE:  Building Code Appeals Affecting the Right-of-Way
 
Transportation has no objection to granting appeals for security gates and doorswings provided they meet the requirements outlined below.
 
Security Gates at Recessed Doorways
  1. The gate operates independently of the door, i.e. the gate and the door are not connected to each other in any manner.

  2. The gate is locked in the open position at the start of the day and is closed at the end of the day.  PDOT will not permit gates that are designed to be opened and closed throughout the day.
Doorswings in Excess of 12" over the R/W
  1. The door functions as an emergency exit only.

  2. The door has no external hardware.

  3. Audio alarms sound when the door is opened.

  4. The door is signed as emergency exit only.
We propose that appeals which meet these requirements be granted by the Building Bureau without further PDOT review.
