Fire Access Road




As part of the campus wide modernization plan, EAS team is currently designing the fire access road at the NE Corner of the campus in compliance with the requirements of the Los Angeles Fire Code. It involves design and plan preparation for the relocation of all underground utility lines, relocation of fire hydrant, design of retaining walls along the property boundaries and determining pad elevations of future central plant and its facilities. Due to limited underground drainage system within the campus, drainage flow of this area was designed to sheet flow towards the gutter that connects the proposed and existing improvement. In order to control the quantity of storm water surface runoff, EAS design included an approved standard for vehicular interlocking pavers in lieu of the regular concrete finish for longitudinal gutter.
