Project Profile:

Glendale Community College

Project Summary

A nice combination of Grasspave2 and Gravelpave2 for a fire lane. Maintenance vehicles also use the fire lanes quite often for parking allowing for regular foot traffic on the concrete. Grasspave2 and Gravelpave2 allow for a narrower concrete strip, looking more like a sidewalk than a road.

Similar to the previous photo only this V-shaped area is done in gravel using GV2, until it meets with another GP2 area in the distant center.

The south end entrance to the fire lane has a No Parking sign with Fire Lane under the symbol. Another sign is on the right where the reinforced grass begins. Note that one side of the fire lane is always marked with palms for the full length of this campus, north/south.
