DESIGN CRITERIA FOR ELEVATED TRANSPORTATION STRUCTURES AND MODAL EXCHANGE FACILITIES

Investigations and evaluations of existing elevated transportation systems were made to establish new guidelines and design standards for elevated transportation structures and modal exchange facilities. These criteria may be used to improve the physical condition of existing elevated systems and reduce their negative environmental impact on wayside areas. Prototypical renovations of existing transit structures and station areas are presented showing ways in which the new design standards may be applied to improve existing transit systems. Also, a prototypical elevated structure and a prototypical modal exchange facility are presented to demonstrate an application of the design criteria to hypothetical situations.
