Sight Distance

Sight distance is measured 10 ft. off the shoulder of the road. A new driveway will not be allowed at a location where the sight distance is inadequate to enter the traffic stream safely. Sometimes sight distance problems may be eliminated by clearing trees and shrubs along the right-of-way line. If the trees and shrubs are a problem, the applicant will be required to do the clearing as part of the entrance permit stipulations. New landscaping should be planned so that sight distance will not be blocked as the landscaping matures.
