ft (4.9 m) minimum for rural highways. Citation needed Maximum grade : Maximum grade is determined by a design table based on terrain and design speeds, 1 with up to 6 generally allowed in mountainous areas and hilly urban areas with exceptions for up to 7 grades on mountainous roads with speed. Pavement sloping : Pavement cross slope of at least.5 and preferably 2 to ensure proper drainage on flat sections. In mountainous terrain, 8 feet (2.4 m) outside and 4 feet (1.2 m) inside shoulders are acceptable, except when there are at least four lanes in each direction, in which case the inside shoulders should also be 8 feet (2.4 m) wide. Roadside barriers should be used for slopes of 3:1 or steeper, in accordance with the current edition of aashto's Roadside Design Guide. WSP is updating the natural, social and cultural environmental conditions and developing mitigation measures; undertaking detailed soil and foundation investigations and analysis; and continuing detailed engineering work. Interstate 35E through. Land slopes within the clear zone should be at most 4:1 and preferably 6:1 or flatter.
