Ingress-egress openings in concrete, asphalt, rock or other curbing provisions, commonly referred to as “curb cuts”, as well as other means of vehicular access to and from private property, shall be regulated in the several zoning districts established by this chapter in accordance with the following requirements.
(A) Number, size and spacing of curb cuts and other access points. In no case shall a curb cut or other access point be less than nine feet or more than 50 feet in length. No more than one curb cut per lot shall be permitted, except in FA, Commercial and Industrial Districts where two shall be permitted on each street the lot fronts.
(B) Location of curb cuts and other access points. At street intersections, no curb or other access point shall be located closer than:
(1) Twenty feet from the intersection point of the two street right-of-way or property lines involved (or in lines extended in case of a rounded corner); or
(2) Twenty-five feet from the intersection of the two curb lines involved (or the lines extended in case of a rounded corner), whichever is the least restrictive.
(C) Access points in the vicinity of interchanges. In no case shall any curb cut, point of access or other means of vehicular ingress and egress from private property onto a public street be permitted closer than 200 feet to the intersection point of that street’s right-of-way line and with the right-of-way line of any portion of an interchange, involving grade separations with that road and any limited access highways; the interchange to include all portions of all ramps, accelerating and deceleration lanes, merge lanes and other facilities specifically designed to facilitate traffic movement onto and off of the limited access highway.
