1 or 2 corridors: How would you do this?

 

I'm doing a street corridor design.  There's a railroad crossing right in the middle.  We are not redoing the railroad crossing.  It is being left "as is".

 

Would you do 2 separate corridors, one on each side of the railroad crossing?

 

Or, would you do a single corridor, with a blank space in the middle where the railroad crossing is?

 

I'm leaning to 2 separate corridors, but am open to ideas.  Thanks.

I would do one and hide the region at the tracks. This would eleiminate coordinating two PGL's

Thank you

I would use 1 corridor with a gap at the tracks. Be sure to add a gap into the earthworks as well so that you don't have the volumes carry across the tracks.

 

I might use 2 corridors if I needed to have a second person work on the project and the track would be the split for the work load.

 

Cheers,
