Bus Service Loop
Project: Bus Service Loop
General Use: Circulation & Disabled Parking Lot
Opening: October 2006
- Improve safety and traffic flow in congested area of campus.
- Provide parking for disabled students.
West of the Manzanita Building now exists the Columbia Campus Accessible Parking Lot, with a capacity of 18 spaces. The existing loop drive also serves for bus and delivery truck turn-around area. The lot, as currently exists has tight turning radii and physical barriers that pose problems for bus and truck movements. It is proposed that the existing roadway between the lot and Manzanita be widened to provide spaces for loading and unloading of two 30-person buses and one van for the disabled and to upgrade the existing vehicle parking to current accessible code.
Pedestrian Walkway - The accessible pedestrian walkway from the existing bus shelter will be extended to the south. The area now being used for accessible parking will be reconfigured to accommodate bus turn-around movements and return to the main entry road.
Disabled Parking Area - The existing spaces on the inside of the turnaround area will be re-constructed and marked to maximize disabled parking and van pool spaces and drop-offs. Access down from the lot will be by a new concrete ramp from the top of the lot to the existing foot bridge.
Central Disabled Access - When completed, this area will be utilized as a campus wide hub for drop-off and pick-up of disabled persons.
