Change portion of driveway grade

Recommended Posts

I am building a driveway on a steep lot. I am trying to keep the slope to 12%. When the driveway turns at the switchback it is very steep.

What is the best way to control that slope on my plan? I don't want it level, I just want to maintain a 12% or less grade. Obviously it naturally gets steep at the turn because it's turning straight down the steep slope.

I also want to make that turn area wider than the rest of the driveway.

Can I make a poly line area the shape I want and then convert that to a terrain area and then add elevation data to control the slope?

Thank you for any help.

Post a copy of your plan please, your question can't be properly addressed without it, since this is a practical problem and not just a setting.

Wow, thanks for making the video. Like you said, just tinkering around and trying different things and checking with the camera after every change is the way to go. I think I have it softened much better. Good enough for the building department anyway.

 

Thanks again DJP,
