§ 90.144  ACCESS TO HIGHWAYS WITH CURB AND GUTTER.
   (A)   Before an access-related improvement is constructed on a curbed highway, the existing curb and gutter shall be completely removed within the access location area. The curb-cut shall be of sufficient width to accommodate the required access width and curb returns, as well as the full length of any turning lane and approach treatments that are being installed.
   (B)   Depressed curb and gutter shall be reinstalled at minor access driveways and may be required at other access types.
 
COMMENTARY:
Removing only the back of a curb and paving over the broken curb section is not acceptable, since this practice results in an exposed face that is highly susceptible to spalling or raveling. On highways with mountable curbs, it is not acceptable to simply pave to the back of the curbing and require motorists to drive over the curbing.
