Ontario Ministry of Transportation - 2018
Organization: Ontario Ministry of Transportation

As an added benefit passage benches can facilitate wildlife passage to avoid animals on the road and chance of vehicular collisions.
These drawings are not meant to be typically inserted into the Contract Drawing package. These conceptual drawings are meant to assist the designer as an informal way to implement passage benches into the General Arrangement drawing where warranted. It is important to confirm that site conditions will allow for this to be successful and that wildlife passage requirements are needed. All relevant design features and notes would be inserted into the General Arrangement drawing according to the site conditions.
