Curb Cuts

I am searching for information on curb cuts and how they are constructed.

I work for an organization in Philadelphia that helps to turn vacant lots into gardens. Some of these gardens need to be handicapped accessible but so far I have not found any information on curb cuts.

Are there specific codes used by the city to determine the width, and slope of the curb cuts? Should I check with a city agency?

Any suggestions would be helpful. We are trying to put together a detailed spec that our contractors can use on these vacant lot projects.

Call your local Building Inspection Department.
They should have the code and specs.
Good Luck!
