4.7.11 Islands. Any raised islands in cross

ings shall be cut through level with the street 23: or have curb ramps at both sides and a level of re

area at least 48 in (1220 mm) long between the

curb ramps in the part of the island intersected 1. by the crossings (see Fig. 15(a) and (b)). → 4.8 Ramps. 4.8.1° General Fig. 13

e Roo o . Any part of an accessible Built-Up Curb Ramp

route with a slope greater than 1:20 shall be considered a ramp and shall comply with 4.8.

4.8.2° Slope and Rise. The least possible

slope shall be used for any ramp. The maxi- and ramps to be constructed on existing sites

murn slope of a ramp in new construction shall or in existing buildings or facilities may have

be 1:12. The maximum rise for any run shall slopes and rises as allowed tri 4.1.6(3)(a) if

be 30 in (760 mm) (see Fig. 16). Curb ramps : * prohibit the use of a 1:12 pe or less.
