Utah Valley State College

Project Summary

There are three design examples of secondary fire lanes on this project. Grasspave2 is one, as shown in the photographs at left. A second is very noticeable square pavers on each side of a sidewalk forming an attractive dashed line pattern along the north side of the events center, and going under the overhead walkway. The third are concrete block pavers which start at the easterly parking lot and go across the isthmus between the two fountains. The concrete blocks were more visible three years ago but now are mostly all covered with grass. Repair of irrigation and other maintenance work was being done at the time of this visit. By the fresh bent grass, it also appeared as though maintenance or fire equipment had driven over the access lanes.
